Mayor Johnson delivers Suffolk State of the City address

SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Suffolk Mayor Linda Johnson delivered her annual State of the City address Tuesday afternoon.

The Hampton Roads Chamber hosted the sold-out event at the Hilton Garden Inn Suffolk Riverfront.

Mayor Johnson highlighted key business development initiatives, updated progress on opportunities and challenges facing the city, and offered a glimpse into the future of Suffolk — with a focus on positive thinking.

“Let us all remember the two most important words we learned today and let’s say them together: ‘Yes, Suffolk,'” Johnson said.

This was part of the event’s theme insisting that nothing is impossible if everyone in the city works together.
