Chamber surveys candidates [podcast]

The Greater Pensacola Chamber will send an online survey to local candidates running for Pensacola City Council and Escambia County Board of County Commissioners. Survey questions will focus on issues that impact the local business community.

The answers provided on the questionnaire will be posted on the Chamber’s website and also distributed directly to the Chamber’s entire membership, business partners and the public at large. The online survey will open at 8 a.m. on Monday, June 22 and will close at noon on Friday, July 8.

“Candidates running for local elective office have a great opportunity to effectively communicate their stances on important business issues,” said Justin Beck, CEO at Beck Partners and Chairman of the Greater Pensacola Chamber’s Policy Committee. “It is critical that the business community pay attention to these responses and elect informed officials who will steer Pensacola in a positive economic direction.”

Todd Thomson, the Chamber’s Vice President of Public Affairs, discussed the survey on “Pensacola Speaks.”
