City Council Candidate Survey

The November 6th election is one of the most crucial elections in recent years. The future direction of Alexandria will be determined by the outcome of this election. The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce recently asked all candidates to complete a survey of critical business issues facing our city. In order to ensure our members are informed prior to entering the voting booth, the Chamber is providing the candidates responses.

The survey questions are derived from the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Legislative Agenda. Through the Legislative Agenda, the Chamber has identified its priority action items for the next year and beyond.
