City’s potential part of annual address

The annual State of the City event is coming to Suffolk Tuesday, and the happening promises to draw hundreds of the region’s top business, political and community leaders to Suffolk.

Mayor Linda T. Johnson will deliver the speech at a luncheon April 27 at noon at the Hilton Garden Inn and Suffolk Conference Center, 100 E. Constance Road. She is expected to highlight key business development initiatives, provide strategic progress updates, address challenges and opportunities in the city and provide a glimpse into what lies in Suffolk’s future.

Diana Klink, media and community relations manager, said the purpose of the event is “to promote business within the region and highlight all of the positive developments within the city.”

The State of the City events are produced by the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce in each of the five South Hampton Roads cities. The mayor at each event delivers the address.

More than 300 area residents are expected to be in attendance at Suffolk’s event.
