Congressman Sherman Hosts Valley Telephone Town Hall on First Full day of Biden Administration
Sherman Oaks – Last night, as the first full day of the new Biden administration concluded, over 4,500 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, the recent attack on the U.S. Capitol, and the new Biden-Harris administration.
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 defeat this virus.
The Congressman also discussed the new Biden administration’s agenda to tackle the Covid crisis, including President Biden’s $1.9 trillion Covid relief plan.
“Telephone Town Halls have always been a regular part of my outreach to constituents,” said Congressman Sherman. “As the nation welcomes a new President who must grapple with an ongoing pandemic, 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 of Biden’s handling of the job so far?
- Very Favorable: 78%
