Additionally, she will give an update on a range of issues impacting the Commonwealth as it recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic and rebuilds its economy.

“Since first arriving in Congress, I have been committed to hearing directly from those I serve. And during the pandemic, these telephone town halls have been a reliable and productive way to reach Virginians wherever is safest or most convenient for them,” said Spanberger. “On Thursday night, I look forward to yet another opportunity to update our neighbors on my recent work in the U.S. House — particularly my efforts to lower prescription drug costs, invest in our nation’s physical infrastructure, strengthen public safety, and protect our democracy. I am honored to serve this community in Congress, and I hope many Virginians will share their questions, concerns, and feedback. By prioritizing these sorts of open conversations and by working together, we can build a stronger future for our Commonwealth’s kids, families, and economy.”
