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 to make informed decisions in the local November 2 elections.
Thirteen candidates are running for six open seats on the Virginia Beach City Council. A forum with the candidates took place at City Hall on September 30. John Wilson, Chair of the Virginia Beach Division of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, moderated the forum.
The Virginia Beach Division of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce endorses the following candidates:
Rita Sweet Bellitto (At Large)
David S. "Dave" Redmond (At Large)
Louis R. Jones (Bayside)
John E. Uhrin (Beach)
James L. "Jim" Wood (Lynnhaven)
Tanya J. Bullock (Princess Anne)
Barbara M. Henley (Princess Anne)
The Chamber’s Virginia Beach Board of Directors, along with the Virginia Beach Roundtable, developed a questionnaire that will help Virginia Beach 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.
