Candidate Conversations 2020

Election Day, Tuesday, November 3, is fast approaching, and some key races are on the ballot. While races for President, Congress, and Senate garner most of the attention, there are critical local races that will have more of a direct impact on you, your business, and our community.

The Greater Niles Chamber wants you to be an informed voter as you head to the polls, so we sat down and interviewed local candidates. Below are links to those interviews. We encourage you to take the time to get to know these candidates a little better, and we would also like for you to share these with your friends, family and co-workers. This election matters, and we need everyone to vote!
