Wednesday’s Event Will be the Congresswoman’s 41st Public, Open Town Hall Event

HENRICO, V.A. — On Wednesday, August 24, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger will host another open, public telephone town hall focused on the issues facing Virginia’s families, seniors, businesses, and overall economy. The event will also be livestreamed on Spanberger’s website and congressional Facebook page.

During the event, Spanberger will answer questions directly from Virginians about her work on behalf of Virginia’s Seventh District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Additionally, she will give an update on a range of issues impacting the Commonwealth’s economy and the communities she represents — including the recently signed into law Inflation Reduction Act that will lower drug costs for Virginia seniors, reduce the federal deficit, and increase domestic energy production while strengthening America’s response to the climate crisis.

“Wherever I go across the Seventh District, I hear from Virginians who are worried about the skyrocketing prices of the prescription drugs they need, rising healthcare costs, and high costs overall,” said Spanberger. “Wednesday’s conversation is an opportunity to reach our neighbors right where they are to share how the Inflation Reduction Act will help address these concerns, answer additional questions about the issues that matter most to the people I serve, and hear directly from residents from across the Seventh District. These conversations allow me to bring Virginians’ voices to Congress, and I hope many of our neighbors will join us.”

WHEN: 6:30pm-7:30pm ET, Wednesday, August 24, 2022
