WAYNESBORO, Va. (WVIR) - Congressman Ben Cline wrapped up 19 town halls in 2019, hitting every locality in Virginia’s 6th District. The last stop was Monday night at Fishburne Military School in Waynesboro.

The Republican freshman talked about the dysfunction in Washington, his efforts to build relationships with Democrats, and the bills he's gotten signed into law. Constituents asked questions about topics ranging from mental health, and education, to federal spending which Cline says is a top priority.

"The federal government is spending too much money. We are going further and further into debt. It's gonna hurt our children and grandchildren in the future. We need to do something about reigning in this record level of debt that we're accumulating and reform the programs and give programs back to the states,” said Cline.

Cline says the states can do a better job with programs than Washington ever could. He says his goal is to keep having town halls so he can hear from constituents.
