The Seventh District-Focused Event was the Congresswoman’s 18th Open, Public Telephone Town Hall since the Start of the COVID-19 Pandemic

WASHINGTON, D.C. — This week, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger hosted an open, public telephone town hall focused on a wide range of issues facing Central Virginia’s families, seniors, and economy.

During the interactive event, Spanberger took questions directly from Central Virginia residents and gathered their feedback about Virginia’s recovery in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. The Congresswoman answered questions on a wide range of topics — including border security, prescription drug costs, physical infrastructure, voting rights, and cybersecurity.

Nearly 5,000 Central Virginians joined Spanberger’s virtual town hall. Click here to watch a full recording of the event.

“As we continue to rebuild from the COVID-19 crisis, we still have many shared challenges ahead here in the Commonwealth. This week’s virtual town hall was an opportunity to hear directly from Central Virginians about how we can keep our economy competitive, our neighbors healthy and safe, and the next generation ready for the future,” said Spanberger. “I want to thank every Virginian who joined our interactive event, and I want to particularly thank those who took time out of their schedules to contribute to the conversation and provide their personal feedback. If you did not have a chance to hear an answer to your question — or if you need assistance with another issue — I encourage anyone in our district to please reach out to my office.”

At the beginning of the event, Spanberger delivered an update on the current state of negotiations on Capitol Hill regarding the U.S. Senate-passed bipartisan physical infrastructure bill — including its billions for Virginia physical infrastructure investments — and her priorities for the proposed Build Back Better economic agenda.

Monday’s telephone town hall was Spanberger’s 18th open, public telephone town hall since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. These events have generally focused on the impacts of the virus on Central Virginia families, healthcare professionals, small businesses, veterans, students, and seniors. Click here to watch full recordings of previous events.
