County Candidates
Chamber-Sponsored TOWN HALL MEETING
As the November 8th election nears, it is important to remember that local races will have a direct impact on Chester County's economy.   On September 22 from 6:00-7:00 p.m., the Chester County Chamber of Commerce will host a Town Hall Meeting at the Fort Lawn Community Center.  All local (county-wide) candidates have been invited to participate.   We ask that Chamber members submit questions for the candidates.  Event moderator Lucas McFadden of CN2 News will use these questions to guide the night's discussion.  The Chamber's goal for the event is to give our members a chance to meet candidates, exchange ideas and then make informed decisions on election day.   *The Chamber does not endorse nor promote individual candidates.
