Congressman Sherman Hosts Valley Telephone Town Hall on Pandemic Recovery
Sherman Oaks – Last night, over 3,500 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 efforts to finally defeat Covid-19, rebuild our economy and to fully re-open our nation.
Congressman Sherman was joined by Dr. Lynn Goldman, Dean of the Milken Institute School of Public Health, who answered questions regarding vaccines, the CDC’s new mask guidelines, and other vital issues to help ensure Valley residents maintain accurate information as they navigate towards the end of the pandemic.
“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: 73%
- Disapprove: 20%
- Unsure: 7%
- Have you received (at least the first shot) the Covid vaccine yet?
- Yes: 85%
- No: 11%
- Prefer not to say: 4%
- Would you want our late August/early September town hall to be a telephone town hall or at Reseda high school’s auditorium (while adhering to the proper health safety guidelines at that time)?
- Telephone Town Hall: 78%
- Reseda High School Auditorium: 16%
- Unsure: 7%
Congressman Sherman’s next Telephone Town Hall will take place on June 24th, 2021.
