Breakfast With Rob: Ashland

ASHLAND – Yesterday, Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01) had the latest stop of his “Breakfast With Rob” series at the Rise & Shine Diner in Ashland, Virginia. He kicked off the series in June in Tappahannock, with his second stop in Kilmarnock in July. He will continue stopping into local favorite breakfast spots across the First District to talk with folks about the issues that matter most to them.

“This morning I had a great time talking with folks at the Rise & Shine Diner,” said Wittman. “I’m working hard on the issues that matter most to Virginians: expanding access to rural broadband, fixing our broken infrastructure, protecting the benefits of our veterans, lowering health care costs, and advocating for our men and women in uniform. I believe the best ideas don’t come from Washington, but from my constituents. This is just another way for me to connect with constituents and hear their thoughts and ideas on how to make Washington work better for them.”  

At today’s stop-in, Congressman Wittman talked to constituents about the need to address our debt and deficit, preserve our region’s natural resources, and expand access to broadband in rural areas. Constituents can stay up to date for when Congressman Wittman will be in their area by signing up for his email list at
