“As we head toward the holidays, my office continues to receive hundreds of requests for assistance related to healthcare, hunger, housing, and unemployment concerns. This pandemic has brought hardships and uncertainty to every community here in Virginia – and there remains a dire need for Congress to deliver immediate, much-needed relief to the American people,” said Spanberger. “This week’s town hall was an important opportunity to hear directly from Central Virginians about their current concerns related to the wellbeing of their families, their businesses, and our Commonwealth. I’d like to thank Secretary Carey for bringing his expertise and his insight to this event, and I’ll keep fighting to protect our most vulnerable neighbors, keep our healthcare workers safe, and provide some degree of peace of mind to our small businesses in the face of this ongoing crisis.”

Wednesday’s telephone town hall was Spanberger’s 10th free, public telephone town hall since the COVID-19 pandemic began. These events have focused on the impacts of the virus on Central Virginia families, small businesses, students, and seniors. Click here to access additional town hall recordings.
