Tuesday’s Event will be the Congresswoman’s 24th Public, Open Town Hall Event Since the Start of the COVID-19 Pandemic

HENRICO, V.A. – Tomorrow, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger will host an open, public telephone town hall focused on issues facing Virginia’s families, businesses, and overall economy. The virtual event will also be livestreamed on Spanberger’s website and congressional Facebook page.

On Tuesday, April 12, Spanberger will answer questions directly from Seventh District residents. Additionally, she will deliver an update on her priorities in Congress, challenges facing the communities she serves, and steps forward for Virginia as it recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last week, Spanberger reached a major milestone of $15 million in casework funds returned to constituents in Virginia’s Seventh District — including more than $4.4 million since the beginning of 2022 due in part to multiple substantial casework victories for local small business owners. Casework dollars are secured and returned by fighting for backlogged benefits and advocating for fair treatment on behalf of constituents having issues with a federal agency, program, or benefit.

“Responding to the needs of Virginians is my top priority in the U.S. House. On Tuesday night, I’m grateful for the opportunity to hear directly from our neighbors about what’s on their minds — and how I can keep working in Congress to deliver tangible results on these issues,” said Spanberger. “Right now, we are facing many challenges as a Commonwealth and as a country. But I firmly believe that if we work together and redouble our commitment to getting things done, we can make sure our communities are stronger places to live, work, and raise a family. I look forward to having the opportunity to engage in this productive, timely conversation with the residents of Virginia’s Seventh District.”

WHO: U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger

WHEN: 7:30pm-8:30pm ET, Tuesday, April 12, 2022

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

Tuesday’s telephone town hall will be Spanberger’s 24th, public telephone town hall since the COVID-19 pandemic began. These events have focused on the pandemic’s impacts on Virginia families, veterans, healthcare professionals, small businesses, students, and seniors. Click here to watch full recordings of previous events.
