CULPEPER, V.A. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today hosted her second “Coffee with Your Congressperson” event in Culpeper, where constituents brought ideas about how Spanberger and her office can better serve the people of Virginia’s Seventh District.

Today’s event at Raven’s Nest Coffee House in Culpeper was Spanberger’s second “Coffee with Your Congressperson Event” held in Central Virginia.

“A truly representative government should actively seek input from the people it serves. Informal events like our ‘Coffee with Your Congressperson’ event are extremely valuable to me and my team as we work to bring the voices of Central Virginians to the U.S. House,” said Spanberger. “I was happy to hear directly from constituents over a cup of coffee and to discuss the key issues on their minds this week. As we continue these low-pressure, person-to-person community conversations, I hope to see many old and new friends as we work together to build stronger opportunities across Central Virginia.”   

Last month, Spanberger hosted her first “Coffee with Your Congressperson” event in Amelia County.

Spanberger is committed to hearing directly from the people of Central Virginia as she continues her work in the U.S. House of Representatives. Earlier this week, Spanberger hosted a town hall in Nottoway County—her third town hall since her swearing-in ceremony in January. In February, Spanberger held town halls in Goochland County and Spotsylvania County.

And earlier this month, Spanberger announced seven additional town halls to be held in the remaining seven counties in Virginia’s Seventh District later this year.
