Survey from Chamber of Commerce gets Chilliwack thinking about the election

Priorities are coming into focus with the election less than two months away

To prepare voters for the 2018 municipal elections this fall, the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce has launched timely election survey online.

Chilliwack will be electing mayor and council for the next four years on Oct. 20, so a little prep by business leaders might be in order.

“The goal of this survey is to gain a better understanding of the local issues that matter most to the Chilliwack Chamber Membership and the business community,” said the Chamber release.

The Chamber is considering its options for engaging voters during the election campaign period this fall leading up to the October election.

“Your survey responses will form the foundation of our organization’s election engagement strategy and will help ensure that the individuals who are running for Mayor and Council across our region are aware of the priorities of Chilliwack and its surrounding communities.”

They are asking business owners to take five minutes to answer a handful of questions, and offer them some direction on civic spending issues like policing, social housing, opioid crisis, and more from municipal planning to roads and fire protection.
