Spanberger hosts countywide town hall in Spotsylvania County
During the town hall, Spanberger answered questions from Seventh District residents about a wide range of topics, including environmental policy, gun violence prevention, campaign finance reform, and the House’s ongoing impeachment inquiry, where things got a bit heated, according to a CNN report.
Additionally, she updated attendees about some of her recent legislative accomplishments in the U.S. House—such as her leadership on a bipartisan bill to expand access to workforce training programs, her push to make final progress on the United States-Mexico-Canada-
“As the voice in the House for the people of the Seventh District, my most important responsibility is to listen to the challenges, stories, suggestions, and opinions of those I serve. Yesterday’s town hall was another opportunity to hear how critical decisions on Capitol Hill are impacting families, seniors, and students in Central Virginia,” said Spanberger. “Throughout yesterday’s town hall, I was reminded of the strong civic engagement found in our district and across the Commonwealth. Additionally, feedback from yesterday’s town hall will help guide my priorities going into a new year of policymaking in the House—and I look forward to additional moments to listen directly to the needs of Central Virginians.”
Since January, Spanberger has held a public town hall in all 10 counties of Virginia’s Seventh District. Spanberger has previously hosted community-focused town halls in Goochland, Spotsylvania, Nottoway, Henrico, Louisa, Amelia, Chesterfield, Culpeper, Powhatan, Orange, and Henrico Counties.
