During this election cycle, PortsmouthCityWatch.org has put significant resources into capturing live, public appearances by candidates for Portsmouth Constitutional Offices. We are particularly appreciative of the Portsmouth Taxpayer Alliance, People for Portsmouth PAC, the Portsmouth Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, and Port Norfolk Civic League for allowing us to be their media partner for candidate events they hosted. Additionally, we invited all to all ballot candidates to sit for interviews with us and/or to provide written statements for publication on PortsmouthCityWatch.org. Sadly, only two candidates chose to follow through on those invitations. Listed below, then, are links to the videos collected from those efforts.

PortsmouthCityWatch.org has elected to endorse no candidates in 2017 and intends to stay that course going forward. Our focus is on bringing the public the views of office seekers in their own words. Members of the PCW team, including the publisher, may express their opinions individually on candidates rather than as part of this collaborative.
