Four Local Legislators Speak at Breakfast Hosted by Danville Chamber

Danville, VA - The Danville-Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce hosted four politicians in our area for a legislative breakfast Friday morning.

Senators Frank Ruff and Bill Stanley as well as Delegates Danny Marshall and Don Merricks spoke to business leaders.

The Chamber says they hosted the event because the decisions these leaders make can directly affect businesses in the Southside.

"We work for every person we represent, whether it is an individual or a corporation or small business so it's great not only to get out of Richmond and back to the land of the living but it is also great to talk to the people that we represent about the issues that matter to them," said Stanley, the Republican Senator representing the 18th District.

Some of the topics they discussed included the gas tax, transportation legislation and education.
