Debbie Jones, chamber president and CEO, was quoted in a press release as saying, it is “important for the local business community to remain engaged in the political process.” She said chamber members want “to hear the candidates’ visions for the future of Prince William County and ideas for maintaining a favorable business climate.”

NOVA’s Manassas campus Provost Roger Ramsammy was quoted in the press release as saying, “We want to hear about the long-term strategies each candidate will convey regarding education in Prince William County.”

Ramsammy added, “Our county boasts two Northern Virginia Community College campuses and the chairman’s emphasis on higher education will be critical for our entire community, workforce development and beyond.”
