Candidate Questionnaire Responses



Norfolk City Council Election May 4th       

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 Norfolk City Council candidates in order to make an informed decision in the May 4 election. Our Chamber’s Norfolk Board of Directors has worked tirelessly to develop a questionnaire that will help Norfolk 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.

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