Congressman Sherman Hosts 2nd Valley Telephone Town Hall of 2021
Sherman Oaks – Last night, over 3,800 Valley residents participated in Congressman Brad Sherman’s (D-Sherman Oaks) interactive “Telephone Town Hall”. During this time, the Congressman updated his constituents on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, rebuilding the economy, vaccine distribution efforts and other vital issues facing Congress.
Congressman Sherman was joined by Dr. Lynn Goldman, Dean of the Milken Institute School of Public Health, who discussed the latest on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, including information on vaccines and what’s needed moving forward to ultimately end this crisis.
The Congressman was also joined by California Assemblymember Jesse Gabriel, who provided information on unemployment benefits, California state stimulus checks and other local issues.
“Telephone Town Halls have always been a regular part of my outreach to constituents,” said Congressman Sherman. “As we work to finally end this pandemic and re-open our country, having accurate information is critical and that is why my Telephone Town Hall last night allowed me to easily interact with thousands of Valley residents, keeping them informed during this critical time in our country.”
During the Telephone Town Hall, Sherman requested input from his constituents by asking a series of survey questions about their thoughts on next steps forward. The results of the survey questions are as follows:
- Do you approve or disapprove of Biden’s handling of the Pandemic so far?
- Approve: 87%
- Disapprove: 7%
- Unsure: 5%
- Have you received the 3rd round of stimulus checks, $1,400 per-person?
- Yes: 37%
- No: 32%
- No - but income over $80,000/$160,000: 25%
- Unsure: 6%
- The last Covid bill, the American Rescue Plan, spends $1.9 trillion to deal with COVID and related economic issues. Do you believe the amount spent is:
- Not Enough: 29%
- About Right: 49%
- Too Much: 22%
