Richmond, Va. – Congressman A. Donald McEachin has spent the past 200 days working to lower health care costs, protecting our environment, increasing paychecks by rebuilding American and restoring ethics and integrity in our government to deliver progress to the people of Virginia’s fourth congressional district. He will be holding events to discuss his vision for the country, give legislative updates, and hear directly from his constituents on what matters most to them. Congressman McEachin issued the following statement:

"After spending several months advocating and passing good policy For The People, I am very excited to be coming home with extended opportunity to meet with constituents,” saidCongressman A. Donald McEachin. “We have events planned all over the district - a town hall about gun violence in Petersburg with special guest, Secretary of Public Safety Brian Moran, another town hall with Congressman Scott in Chesapeake and a town hall in Emporia about healthcare. I will also be doing several book drops at libraries in the district and I will also meet with constituents in Surry to discuss food deserts, an issue in which I have introduced bicameral legislation with Senator Warner.

“I plan to be all over the district to hear the concerns of my constituents and share information about the first seven months of this Congress. It will be a busy time and I look forward to being out around the district for an extended period.”
