A Message from your Chamber

The Northwest Chamber of Commerce is apolitical. We have never endorsed one candidate or party over another, and we are not starting now. What we do want to stress, though, is the need for you to vote tomorrow, November 6th. If you don’t think that your vote counts, ask “Johnny-O”, candidate for Baltimore County Executive. He won by 9 votes!

Many before us fought for the right to vote. Honor them by casting your ballot.
