Congressman Sherman Hosts 4th Valley Telephone Town Hall of 2021
Sherman Oaks – Last night, over 3,000 Valley residents participated in Congressman Brad Sherman’s (D-Sherman Oaks) interactive “Telephone Town Hall” where the Congressman updated valley residents on efforts to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, rebuild our economy and restore our normal way of life.
The Congressman also updated Valley residents on other critical issues facing Congress, such as President Biden’s infrastructure proposal the “American Jobs Plan” and how to fund it, information on child tax credit provisions for families recovering from the pandemic, and efforts to protect voting rights that are currently under attack across the nation.
Congressman Sherman was joined by Dr. Lynn Goldman, Dean of the Milken Institute School of Public Health, who answered questions on vaccines and vaccines for children, touched on concerns regarding the Delta variant outbreak, and provided clarification and guidance on the recent loosening of certain CDC and government Covid-19 guidelines.
“Telephone Town Halls have always been a regular part of my outreach to constituents,” said Congressman Sherman. “As we work to finally emerge from this crisis and rebuild our economy, 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 Valley residents 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 President Biden’s handling of the job so far?
- Approve: 74%
- Disapprove: 16%
- Unsure: 10%
- What is your bigger concern about voting in America?
- Making sure all who can cote can vote early: 53%
- No ineligible people vote and there’s no fraud: 14%
- Equally concerned: 33%
- In addition to our regular infrastructure spending, do you think we should add:
- $1 Trillion (along the lines of the bipartisan proposal): 25%
- $4 Trillion (along the lines of Biden’s American Jobs Plan): 42%
- $6 Trillion (along the lines of Bernie Sander’s proposal which encompasses Biden’s $4 trillion plan and $2 trillion for more Medicare coverage and lowering Medicare eligibility): 33%
