Portsmouth and Suffolk City City Council Candidate Questionnaire Responses Available

As the leading voice of business, the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce is committed to providing our members and the voters of our community with the information they need to know about Portsmouth and Suffolk City Council candidates in order to make an informed decision in the November 6 election. The Chamber’s Portsmouth and Suffolk Boards of Directors have worked tirelessly to develop a questionnaire that will help voters understand each candidate’s position on policies important to the business community. We believe by representing the business interest (large and small) within our community, we help assure a strong economy and a vibrant city.

Both boards developed a questionnaire regarding areas of interest to the business community which are economic development, workforce development, transportation, city management, education, and regionalism.
