Congresswoman Spanberger’s Town Hall in Orange County

Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger will hold an open, county-wide town hall in Orange County on September 15. This will be Spanberger’s 10th town hall in Central Virginia since taking office eight months ago.  Town halls allow her to hear about issues that matter most to Central Virginians, answer questions about her work for the Seventh District, and discuss solutions that can make our communities stronger.

The bulk of Spanberger’s town hall will be devoted to questions from constituents. However, she will deliver a brief progress report on her recent work in Central Virginia and in the U.S. House, including her community roundtable on prescription drug pricing, her two-day, nine-stop farm tour across the district, the 2019 Rural Broadband Summit, recent bills to help Central Virginia students with student loans and work-study opportunities, and additional topics. Her team will be on-hand to help anyone experiencing an issue with a federal government benefit or program.

WHEN: Sunday, September 15, 12:00-1:00 pm ET
HERE: Germanna Community College Locust Grove Campus, Room 114
ADDRESS: 2130 Germanna Highway, Locust Grove, VA 22508
