Over 200 people attended the breakfast to hear Democratic candidate Ralph Northam and Republican candidate Ed Gillespie talk about their vision for Virginia and how we address major issues facing Hampton Roads.
The Peninsula Insiders’ Breakfast Series was launched to highlight statewide issues that impact our region. This season we hosted a panel discussion with local government relations professionals to talk through budget and legislative issues that would impact the 2017 General Assembly Session, afterwards we discussed the impacts of the session with key local lawmakers, next we invited economic development professionals to highlight opportunities the region has for continued economic growth and collaboration, and we finished up by hosting the candidates for governor less than 3 weeks before the election.
We look forward to next season as the Wason Center launches a regional quality of life study with our new Peninsula Advisory Board. Watch your inbox for details for next season!
