ICYMI: Spanberger Hosts Virtual Telephone Town Hall Focused on Issues Facing Virginia’s Families, Businesses, and Economy

This Week’s Event was the Congresswoman’s 25th Public, Open Town Hall Event Since the Start of the COVID-19 Pandemic

HENRICO, V.A. — This week, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger hosted her 25th open, public telephone town hall since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Spanberger answered questions directly from Virginians about her priorities in the U.S. House. At the start of the town hall, she outlined her reaction to the recently leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court of the United States, and she delivered an update on additional physical infrastructure investments coming to Virginia’s highways thanks to the bipartisan infrastructure law.

During the event, Spanberger discussed a wide range of issues with Seventh District residents — including border security, inflation, reproductive rights, physical infrastructure investments, prescription drug costs, and more.

More than 4,500 Virginians joined during Wednesday night’s event. Click here for a full recording.

“These interactive forums are always a fantastic opportunity to hear directly from the people I serve, as well as to update thousands of Virginians about my ongoing work in the U.S. House,” said Spanberger. “During this conversation, I had the chance to learn more about the day-to-day challenges facing our district’s families, businesses, and communities. This feedback informs my work in Congress to better serve, protect, and deliver for Virginia’s Seventh District. I want to thank every Virginian who took time out of their schedules to join us earlier this week — and I hope anyone who did not have their question answered will please reach out directly to my office.”

Wednesday’s event was Spanberger’s 25th open, public town hall since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. These virtual town halls have focused on the many issues facing Virginia’s families, veterans, healthcare professionals, small businesses, students, and seniors.
