Wednesday’s Event Will be the Congresswoman’s 26th Public, Open Town Hall Event Since the Start of the COVID-19 Pandemic

HENRICO, V.A. — On Wednesday, June 29, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger will host another open, public telephone town hall focused on the issues facing Virginia’s families, businesses, seniors, 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 her legislation that recently passed with a bipartisan majority in the U.S. House that would help lower costs at the grocery store and the gas pump.

“From the rising cost of gas to the recent Dobbs decision, I have received many questions about how we can work together to respond to the concerns of Virginians, listen to the needs of our neighbors, and build a stronger future for Virginia,” said Spanberger. “Wednesday night’s event will be yet another opportunity for Virginians to ask me directly about my work in Congress and how I am working with both parties to solve problems — not just talk about them. I hope anyone in the Seventh District who would like to join will not hesitate to dial in — because my responsibility is to be accountable to the people I represent and bring their voices to Congress.”

WHO: U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger

WHEN: 6:30pm-7:30pm ET, Wednesday, June 29, 2022

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