Next Week’s Event Will Focus on Many Issues Facing the Seventh District’s Families, Seniors, & Economy

WOODBRIDGE, Va. — On Wednesday, January 17, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger will host an open, public telephone town hall focused on a range of issues facing Virginia’s families, seniors, and economy. The virtual event will also be livestreamed via video on Spanberger’s congressional website and Facebook page.

Spanberger will take questions directly from Virginians across Virginia’s Seventh District, gather their feedback, and provide answers. Additionally, she will update attendees about her ongoing work to pass the 2024 Farm Bill, crack down on cartels and illicit fentanyl trafficking, and prevent a dangerous government shutdown ahead of critical funding deadlines.

“Wednesday night’s event will be a fantastic opportunity to hear directly from Virginians across the Seventh District about issues facing their families, small businesses, and neighborhoods,” said Spanberger. “These events help make sure our government is responsive to the people — and it’s these conversations that guide me as I advocate for the issues that matter most to the individuals I represent. I hope many Virginians will dial in to share their questions, concerns, and feedback.”

WHO: U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger

WHEN: 7:30pm-8:30pm ET, Wednesday, January 17, 2024

DETAILS: To join the interactive telephone town hall, Virginians should dial in to 833-380-0670. To watch the discussion live, Virginians can go to spanberger.house.gov/live or Spanberger’s Facebook page during the event.
