Pam Witham (I) – Candidate Virginia Beach City Council At-Large

Pam Witham, running for Virginia Beach City Council At Large

1. Why are you running for office?

I am running for office because I want to see an even playing field for everyone in Virginia Beach. I am running because for too long our city has focused on the oceanfront without seeing the off-season potential we have to drive revenue. I am running because I can bring years of knowledge from the hospitality industry and property management industry to city council.

2. Why should people vote for you?

My campaign is about being the voice to represent the people and I have no ties to special interest groups, that’s why people should vote for me.

3. What’s your favorite thing about the area you want to represent?

My favorite thing about the area I want to represent are our historical sites.

4. What is the biggest problem your area is facing, how will you fix it?

The biggest problem we are facing as an area is flooding and sea level rise. This issue is all about preparation and education. If we inform home owners and business owners of their risk, they can get a plan in place for the future. We need to identify the issue and help citizens prepare.

6. Describe Hillary Clinton in max 3 words?

7. What do you do for a living? Why do you do it?
