The San Diego Chamber hosted its annual Congressional Luncheon Monday at the beautiful Hilton Bayfront Hotel. The event brought together nearly 500 business leaders and government officials, to hear from the luncheon’s featured panel speakers Congressmembers Susan Davis, Duncan Hunter, Darrell Issa, and Scott Peters.
Chamber Executive VP & COO Aimee Faucett moderated the panel and asked the Congressional delegation about their (sometimes heated) views on the upcoming presidential race, homelessness, gun control, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and other federal issues related to the well-being of San Diego’s regional economy. The Congressional delegates also answered poignant questions from the audience during an interactive Q&A session.
