ICYMI: Spanberger Hosts Virtual Town Hall on Issues Facing Central Virginia Families, Businesses, & Economy

The Congresswoman Spent Last Week Meeting with Constituents to Discuss the Results of the American Rescue Plan, the Proposed Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, & More

HENRICO, V.A. – IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger last week hosted an open-topic, public telephone town hall focused on Central Virginia’s families, businesses, and economy.

On Thursday night, Spanberger answered questions directly from Central Virginians about challenges they are experiencing during Virginia’s economic recovery and ideas they have for improving the Seventh District going forward. During the event, she shared her views on a wide range of important issues — including the need for physical infrastructure investments in Central Virginia, prescription drug costs, broadband internet expansion, public safety, voting rights protections, and the evolving situation in Afghanistan.

More than 6,000 Central Virginians tuned in for the event. Click here to watch a full recording of the town hall.

“Last week, I had a productive work period in the Seventh District — hearing directly from Central Virginians about the issues they are facing, the ways the American Rescue Plan has supported our communities during this pandemic, and joining educators and students in celebrating the new school year. In these conversations, I have heard about what is working, what is helpful, and what more we can do during our recovery. Thursday night’s telephone town hall was a terrific opportunity to build on these perspectives and ensure our progress over the next few months,” said Spanberger. “I was honored to join thousands of Central Virginians and take questions from Virginia parents, seniors, business owners, veterans, and more. If anyone who joined our event was unable to share their question, please reach out to my office for information and assistance.”

Thursday’s telephone town hall was Spanberger’s 17th open, public telephone town hall since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. These events have focused on the impacts of the virus on Central Virginia families, healthcare professionals, small businesses, students, and seniors. Click here to watch full recordings of previous events.
