WOODBRIDGE, Va. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger last week hosted an open, public telephone town hall to discuss issues faced by Virginia families, seniors, and small businesses.

During the event, Spanberger and Seventh District residents discussed many topics and priorities — including protecting Social Security and Medicare from cuts, passing gun violence prevention legislation, and expanding opportunity for future generations of Virginians. Additionally, Spanberger delivered updates on her work to protect the right to choose, as well as her continued focus on combatting fentanyl trafficking and preventing overdoses.

More than 5,300 Virginians joined Thursday night’s event. Click here for a full video recording of the event.

“These town hall events give me the opportunity to hear directly from the Virginians I serve in a way that’s convenient for them. These conversations focus on issues of strengthening public safety, lowering costs, protecting our seniors, and growing our Commonwealth’s economy,” said Spanberger. “During Thursday night’s town hall, I appreciated yet another chance to engage on many of the issues that matter most to the Seventh District. I encourage anyone who was unable to ask a question to please reach out to my office — and I look forward to continuing this dialogue in the days, weeks, and months ahead.”

Thursday’s event was Spanberger’s 48th open, public town hall event. These town halls have focused on a range of issues facing Virginia’s families, Veterans, seniors, small businesses, students, and communities.
