The Hampton Roads Chamber hosted a Facebook Live event at the Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel on Thursday September 27th. All eight of the city council candidates were invited and six were able to attend. The Portsmouth Division Board of the Hampton Roads Chamber initiated the first of its kind event and it was moderated by Joe Fisher of Wavy TV-10.
The candidates were asked the same six questions and given the same amount of time to answer the questions, they were also given a set amount of time for opening and closing remarks. Tracy Link, the Chair for the Portsmouth Division Board said, “This was a good opportunity for candidates to comfortably answer questions one on one. We got great information from the candidates about their thoughts on economic development. The questions were great to keep the candidates focused on the lens of business development.” The Hampton Roads Chamber is an impactful advocate working year round for you on the issues that matter to the business community.
