U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger hosted an open-topic, public telephone town hall last week that was focused on Central Virginia’s families, businesses, and economy.

“Last week, I had a productive work period in the Seventh District — hearing directly from Central Virginians about the issues they are facing, the ways the American Rescue Plan has supported our communities during this pandemic, and joining educators and students in celebrating the new school year. In these conversations, I have heard about what is working, what is helpful, and what more we can do during our recovery. Thursday night’s telephone town hall was a terrific opportunity to build on these perspectives and ensure our progress over the next few months,” saidSpanberger. “I was honored to join thousands of Central Virginians and take questions from Virginia parents, seniors, business owners, veterans, and more. If anyone who joined our event was unable to share their question, please reach out to my office for information and assistance.”
