In Her Fifth Town Hall Since Taking Office In January, Spanberger Answered Central Virginians’ Questions On Climate Change, Medicare, and Veterans Affairs

On Tuesday, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger hosted her fifth in-district town hall event in Virginia’s Seventh District. Spanberger delivered a brief update on her work in Washington and took questions, comments, and concerns from Louisa County residents.

During the town hall held at Louisa County High School, Spanberger updated constituents on her recent legislative efforts in Washington—including launching the 2019 Rural Broadband Survey, fighting to make prescription drug pricing more transparent, passing legislation that would renew protections for victims of partner violence, advocating for Virginia cattlemen and livestock transporters, and introducing and passing an amendment that would improve the accuracy of broadband access data.

“One of my most important responsibilities is to make sure that everyone in Virginia’s Seventh District feels that their voice is heard,” said Spanberger. “Town halls and other public events across our district allow me to hear directly from those I serve, listen to their concerns and suggestions, and use that information to shape the conversations happening in Washington. I will continue translating the experiences of Central Virginians into practical actions in Congress—and I will continue to listen to anyone who is interested in making real progress on the issues that matter most to our communities in Louisa County and beyond.”

This week, Spanberger will continue a two-week district work period by meeting with constituents, sitting down with local government and business leaders in Chesterfield County, hosting a Coffee With Your Congressperson event in Orange County, and meeting with area farmers.

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