Tuesday’s Event Was the Congresswoman’s 22nd Open, Public Town Hall Since the Start of the COVID-19 Pandemic
HENRICO, V.A. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger this week hosted an open, public telephone town hall focused on issues facing families, seniors, and businesses in Virginia’s Seventh District.
During the interactive event, Spanberger took calls and comments directly from Virginians and gave an update on her priorities in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Congresswoman answered questions on a wide range of topics — including inflation, supply chain challenges, climate change, prescription drug prices, border security and fentanyl trafficking, and more.
Nearly 10,000 Virginians joined the event. Click here to watch a full video of Tuesday evening’s telephone town hall.
“Virginians care deeply about matters facing our Commonwealth. It was a privilege to be joined by thousands of our neighbors who took the time to participate in our telephone town hall. During Tuesday night’s event, I engaged directly with the people I serve to address their most pressing concerns — including prices at the grocery store, the threat of illicit fentanyl on our streets, and difficulties with federal agencies,” said Spanberger. “As we continue our economic recovery in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, I was grateful for the opportunity to update our neighbors on my work to combat inflation, support working families, and lower prescription drug costs. Thank you to everyone who joined our event, and I hope anyone who has an outstanding question, concern, or issue will reach out to my office.”
Tuesday’s event was Spanberger’s 22nd open, public telephone town hall since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
