The HRCC-Virginia Beach Division Board of Directors approved endorsements for Mayor and City Council on September 7. Each candidate for Mayor and City Council answered a series of seventeen business related policy questions. Board members participated in a total of twelve hours of face to face interviews prior to discussing the endorsements and making a recommendation.
The endorsements are as follows:
W.D. “Will” Sessoms, Mayor
Rosemary A. Wilson, City Council At-Large
Robert M. “Bobby” Dyer, City Council Centerville
Dr. Amelia Ross-Hammond, City Council Kempsville
Shannon D.S. Kane, City Council Rose Hall
“We strongly believe that the Chamber endorsed candidates best support the policy issues that are important to the business community”, said Virginia Beach Chair Joe Taylor (Taylor’s-Do-It Centers).
