Join us for the 15th Annual Legislative Update, featuring your state senators, representatives, and county commissioner. Since we can’t meet in person this year, we’re moving the event online (see link below).

With our business community still reeling from the impact of events over the past two weeks, on top of the worldwide pandemic, it is more critical than ever to hear directly from the elected officials who represent you and your business or organization. They will share critical information about how they plan to support the local business community as you recover.

Submit Your Questions!
The elected officials want to hear from you — what are your needs and concerns? You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions during the event via the chat feature, or you can submit them ahead of time to info@sewardbusiness.org.

This event is co-hosted by:
Seward Civic & Commerce Association
Longfellow Business Association
Lake Street Council

As most of you know, Gandhi Mahal was one of many restaurants destroyed during the riots. They have generously hosted this event for over ten years. You can donate to their recovery fund here.

Our remaining restaurants need your support more than ever. We encourage you to order take out for lunch!
Then listen in while you eat at home or at work.
Please support our local restaurants with your business during this challenging time.

Still need to join or renew? It’s easy to do online!
