The Brookhaven-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce will provide its members with a unique opportunity to interact will local legislators Monday.
The Chamber will host a legislative breakfast at Mitchell’s at 7:30 a.m. Monday.
Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Garrick Combs said the breakfast is one of the benefits of becoming a member of the Chamber.
Sen. Sally Doty and Reps. Becky Currie and Vince Mangold will attend the breakfast to address any questions Chamber members might have about legislation.
“The breakfast gives Chamber members the opportunity to spend time addressing whatever legislative issues they are concerned about,” Combs said. “We are just providing a nice, orderly venue to ask lawmakers those questions.”
Combs said Chamber members will have the opportunity to write down questions and pass them to a moderator, who will then address the legislators.
“Chamber members are concerned how legislation will affect their businesses,” Combs said. “This gives legislators the opportunity to assure our business leaders.”
All members of the Chamber are welcome to attend the event. It is not expected to last later than 9 a.m.
