Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton held her first town hall in Aldie, Virginia today with over 250 constituents in attendance
Aldie, VA — Today, Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) held the first in-person town hall Virginia's 10th Congressional District has seen since 2014. The event was Congresswoman Wexton's first town hall since her swearing in.
The Congresswoman addressed a crowd of over 250 constituents and gave an update on her first two months in Congress: speaking about her early efforts to end the government shutdown, her legislative priorities, and her recent committee assignments.
Congresswoman Wexton then took questions for more than an hour from dozens of constituents. The questions and remarks touched on health care, climate change, tax reform, and gun violence prevention among a number of other topics.
"From climate change to health care, I need to hear directly from my constituents. Town halls are one of the best ways for me to speak to the issues facing my district," said Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton. "I take my responsibility as a public servant very seriously, and I intend to make myself readily accessible to my constituents for as long as I serve in Congress."
