WEDNESDAY: Spanberger to Host Virtual Telephone Town Hall Focused on Issues Facing Virginia Veterans

During Wednesday’s Interactive Event, the Congresswoman will be joined by Representatives from the Virginia Department of Veterans Services to Answer Questions Directly from Seventh District Veterans

WOODBRIDGE, V.A. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger will host an open, public telephone town hall next Wednesday focused on issues facing Virginia veterans. The virtual event will also be livestreamed on Spanberger’s website and congressional Facebook page.

On Wednesday, February 22, Spanberger will be joined by representatives from the Virginia Department of Veterans Services to answer questions directly from Seventh District Veterans and their families. Additionally, the Congresswoman will deliver an update on her work for Virginia’s Veterans. In December, the President signed into law her bipartisan legislation to get refurbished government computers into the hands of Veterans.

“Our neighbors who answered the call to serve sacrificed to keep us safe — and we must do all we can to support them in return. While my team works hard to serve all Veterans who call the Seventh District home, I know there are still many issues facing Veterans in our communities,” said Spanberger. “I’m looking forward to Wednesday night’s event to hear directly from Virginia Veterans and their loved ones about their personal experiences with the VA, backlogged claims, mental health concerns, and more. These conversations help me to better understand and work on Capitol Hill to support our Veterans. I’m grateful to the Virginia Department of Veterans Services for joining us once again to share their expertise and help reach those who can benefit.”
