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
All are welcomed, tickets are not required, and the
doors open at 11:30 am.
U.S. Sen. Mark Warner met Sunday with young Democrats from Culpeper, Orange and Madison counties. Warner, Virginia’s senior senator, encouraged the teens to stay involved with politics, and described some of his legislative initiatives, including the Stop Stupid Acts bill he introduced. The bill would ensure that, if there was another government shutdown, most government activities would continue, while only Congress and White House employees would have their pay stopped. Warner took questions from the teens, who asked about immigration policies, taxes and the deficit.
High School Students from Virginia’s Seventh District will have the Opportunity to Win a Trip to Washington, D.C. to spend the day with their Congresswoman.
