Town Hall Saturday, June 8th at 11:00 AM
Woodbridge, VA, May 29, 2019
On Saturday, June 8th at 11:00 AM Congressman Gerry Connolly, Chairman of the House subcommittee on Government Operations, will host a community town hall in Prince William County on the ongoing opioid epidemic. The town hall is open to the public and will include a discussion looking at what can be done at the federal, state, and local level of government in response to this public health crisis.
“This is a crisis that’s impacting communities across Northern Virginia and our country. By bringing this panel of experts together, we hope people will know they aren’t alone in this fight and that there are resources available in our community to help with recovery,” Connolly said.
The program will feature a panel of subject matter experts who will discuss possible solutions to this crisis and identify additional needs. Community members will have the opportunity to ask the panelists questions and get additional information and materials at resource tables that will be present before and after the town hall. Rep. Connolly held a similar town hall in Fairfax County last Congress.
