An astounding 150 million voters showed up to the polls this month to make their voices heard. That’s over two-thirds of eligible voters; a rate of turnout our country has not seen since the turn of the century. We are proud to know that so many of our neighbors and chamber members took to the time to exercise their civic right to vote.
As we come to the end of a most unusual year, there are so many issues at the front of our minds: the safety and health of our friends and family, job security, and economic recovery, just to name a few.
The Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber of Commerce recently hosted its annual Legislative Breakfast, virtually, of course, to tackle these topics with our local leaders. George Stark, Director of External Affairs of Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation caught up with Congressman Conor Lamb, State Senator Pam Iovino, State Representatives Anita Kulik and Valerie Gaydos, Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, and Allegheny County Councilman Sam DeMarco. The group discussed issues that many residents and business owners are concerned about going into 2021.
A recording of the breakfast can be found here.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your colleagues a joyous, safe and endearing Thanksgiving and holiday season. This is final issue of “From the Desk Of Chris Heck” for 2020 as we will resume publication in January 2021. We hope the content has been valuable, informative and educational as we hope to see 2021 as a new dawn for growth and opportunity for all of us here in the Airport Area.
Best Wishes –
Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber of Commerce
