HENRICO, V.A. — Tuesday night, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger 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 and supply chain issues, prescription drug prices, border security, addiction recovery, Putin’s ongoing war in Ukraine, and more.

“During Tuesday night’s conversation, I listened to the challenges Virginia families, seniors, and communities face every day — from the pain of fueling up at the gas pump to concerns about the security of our country’s borders, the accessibility of addiction recovery resources, and the skyrocketing prescription drug costs,” said Spanberger. “I am grateful to all who took the time to join our event, and I will continue working across party lines in Congress to address these top-of-mind concerns. If you have any outstanding questions, concerns, or feedback — or if you need assistance with an issue involving a federal agency, benefit, or program — I encourage you to be in touch with my office.”

Tuesday’s event was Spanberger’s 24th open, public telephone town hall since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. These events have focused on the impacts of the virus on Virginia families, veterans, healthcare professionals, small businesses, students, and seniors.
