The Philippine Cultural Center on Baxter Road was the place to be for Mayor Bobby Dyer’s “Unity Party” that was held Thursday, January 17th 2019.

Approximately 300 attendees including several current and past public officials as well as candidates from the 2018 election cycle came out to enjoy music, the company of friends and a great buffet provided by the Imperial Palace Restaurant and Primo Pizza.

Attendance records indicate that attendees came from virtually every area of Virginia Beach who represented a wide range of citizens from different socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. No admission fee was charged for this event and the Philippine Cultural Center was deemed to be the best location due to its central location in Virginia Beach as well as being close to four HRT Bus Routes which would assure ease-of-access for as many people as possible.

Virginia Beach is a family of over 435,000 people” Mayor Dyer said “and I am humbled to have the honor of being your Mayor.” Among the moments that received the most attention was the affection Mayor Dyer expressed to his wife, Trish, referring to her as “the First Lady of Virginia Beach.”

Mayor Bobby Dyer completes Town Hall Meetings

Newly elected Mayor Bobby Dyer has completed a series of Town Hall Meetings that were held throughout the City of Virginia Beach, meeting with constituents to hear their concerns about the future of our city.

In a unique approach to meeting with residents, this series of Town Hall meetings was held at various Virginia Beach Recreation Centers and Libraries with some meetings scheduled for the afternoon while others were held in the evening hours.

For some residents, afternoon meetings worked better while children were still in school or to avoid driving after dark, while for others the evening meetings best fit their schedule as many came straight after their normal work day.

As these meetings had smaller numbers of attendees individually, having shorter meetings in various parts of Virginia Beach gave more Citizens the opportunity to interact with Mayor Dyer than would have been possible with the traditional format of one meeting attended by a large number of people.

Some issues such as flood control and mitigation, pay compression for our public safety personnel and government spending were discussed at all of the meetings, issues such as tourism, transportation trash and water bills were discussed at different Town Hall meetings.

“We are a large city with a very diverse population. I felt it was important to make myself available to as many different Citizens in every part of our city as possible to understand what issues are important to their neighborhoods and businesses. I think these Town Hall/Meet & Greet meetings have accomplished that and I look forward to more in the future. Mayor Bobby Dyer

Mayor Dyer has plans to hold more of these Town Hall/Meet & Greet meetings during his tenure as Virginia Beach Mayor.

In keeping with his campaign promise to hold Town Hall Meetings throughout Virginia Beach prior to the new term of City Council beginning in 2019, Mayor Bobby Dyer is pleased to announce that these meetings are scheduled to take place in our public libraries and recreation centers.
