Local governments now know who will be leading them for the next four years. Last Saturday's civic elections in BC brought about sweeping changes in some municipalities, while affirming the direction of incumbents in others.
The Chamber will continue our work with all governments in Greater Victoria to ensure the voice of business continues to be heard.
"Over the next few weeks I'll be extending an invitation to meet with all of the newly elected mayors and councillors," Chamber CEO Bruce Williams said. "As the regional Chamber, we can help municipalities build good relationships with their business communities. We also work with community chambers to amplify individual voices and connect with higher levels of government."
The Chamber looks forward to continuing our tradition of dialogue to help create good economic conditions needed for a healthy business community. New councils must hold their first meeting between Nov. 1 and Nov. 10.
