“But it really goes deeper than that. The chamber is made up of citizens to live and work in this area, so this is our home. Our members want to know who their elected officials are and where their stances are on the issues that affect us all.”

Three candidates, NDP candidate Jeffrey Swanson, Liberterian candidate Robert McFadzean and Green Party nominee Kira Brunner, will not be in attendance.
