Wednesday: Spanberger to host virtual telephone Town Hall focused on issues facing Virginia veterans

by | Feb 21, 2023 | Government

7th District Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger will host an open, public telephone town hall tonight focused on issues facing Virginia veterans. The virtual event will also be livestreamed on Spanberger’s website and congressional Facebook page.      Here’s the info from the Congresswoman’s press release:

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.”
