On August 3, he has a scheduled book drop in Surry, and he also will meet with constituents in Surry to discuss food deserts during a stop at the Dendron Community Center on Rolfe Highway at 10:30 a.m. Food deserts and addressing them in both rural and urban communities has been an issue McEachin has championed during his time in Washington, having introduced bicameral legislation with Virginia Senator Mark Warner on the topic.
“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,” McEachin said.
“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,” he continued. “It will be a busy time and I look forward to being out around the district for an extended period.”
He added that he 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. The events he will be holding throughout the district are for the expressed purpose of discussing his vision for the country, giving legislative updates, and hearing directly from his constituents on what matters most to them.
The Coffee with Your Congressman event will provide an opportunity for local citizens to talk directly with their congressman about issues that matter to them. It will be at 10:30 a.m. August 3 at the Dendron Community Center, 2850 Rolfe Highway, Dendron, VA, 23839, and the public is urged to attend.
