NBC29: Representative Spanberger visits Greene and Madison counties to celebrate funded community projects


Seventh District Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger joined local leaders in Madison County and Greene County on Wednesday, April 24. Both counties celebrated receiving funds for community-requested projects.

“We were able to work together to make sure that we put forth a package and application through the appropriations process that secured the funding to make this project a reality,” Seventh District Congresswoman Spanberger said.

Madison County received $450,000. The sheriff’s office will use the money to buy a new bi-directional amplifier system. Spanberger mentioned that in 2023, Greene County Sheriff Erik Weaver emphasized the need for security in schools and direct communication.

“Having the ability for first responders to be able to communicate directly with school administrators and educators in the event of an emergency of any type is a major priority for the county,” Spanberger said.

Greene County received $820,000. Its sheriff’s office will purchase a new virtual reality training system. The funds will also be used to improve the community park.

“I spent time out at the park in Greene County, with the park director, where he talked about the need for security improvements for access improvements, talking about how the park really is a central piece of the Green County community,” Spanberger said.

Spanberger also visited Culpeper County where they received over $630,000.
