Home Letters To The Editor Offshore Drilling critical to future economic growth of our region

Holmes, a native of  the oil patch in Mississippi, told council Virginia Beach’s economy needs the benefit the oil drilling economy would bring.

Do not allow Wilmington, Charleston, or Savannah to beat us to the punch. It is hoped that you, too, will realize the benefit of Virginia Beach becoming the focal point for this effort. I would appreciate a reply from you prior to the closed council meeting on August 18, in which your position on this issue is given.”  Read Holmes complete letter to the city council:
