Statement on the Passage of the Tourism Development Fund

Williamsburg, VA - "Over the past few months, residents and business owners have asked us to slow down and consider alternative funding mechanisms, in addition to exploring a regional approach for a shared outcome. With the passage of the Tourism Development Fund (TDF) today, I will continue to ensure that taxpayer dollars are used effectively. I welcome any revisions to the TDF to address my concerns and those of residents and business owners should a majority of Council be open to it."
