2016 Candidate Survey Results Released

The Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce has released the results of a recent survey of candidates for the City of Tallahassee and Leon County Commissions. The survey was conducted by The Chamber and its Business Advocacy Committee. “The Business Advocacy Committee strives to keep our members informed and educated about the issues affecting business in Tallahassee and Leon County. The Committee continues to work on issues like the repeal of the business license tax, improved permitting processes and changes to development impact fees, but we also feel it is important for our members to know what the candidates believe our business environment should look like.” said Ed Murray, Chair of the Business Advocacy Committee.

The Chamber candidate survey was sent to all individuals who are qualified for the ballot and seeking a seat on the City of Tallahassee of Leon County Commissions in the upcoming August primary election. “The response to the survey has been great,” said Sue Dick, President and CEO of The Chamber. “All but two candidates chose to participate, and we believe this is a perfect opportunity for candidates to share their vision for the local business environment with our membership.”

The Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce represents over 1,400 member businesses making it the largest and most unified voice for business in the Tallahassee area. “The Chamber has been engaged in advocacy on behalf of the business community for over 93 years. With our new strategic plan in development we look forward to increasing our advocacy efforts and working to enhance the business environment. Surveying the candidates for the local commissions is a great step in that direction,” said Sue Dick.
