On September 29, ten members of the Chamber’s Virginia Beach Division Board interviewed candidates in the race for a seat on the Virginia Beach City Council. The panel met with Dennis Free, John Moss and Prescott Sherrod. The three are vying for the seat left vacant when Councilwoman Rita Sweet Bellitto relocated to the Seattle area several months ago. In July, City Council appointed Prescott Sherrod to replace Bellitto.
The Chamber is proud to announce its endorsement of Prescott Sherrod, a business owner who has served on the Development Authority. Sherrod’s pro-business views on public policy matters and experience, are reasons for the endorsement.
The Chamber supports non partisan local elections and reminds the public to vote on November 8, 2011.
