State of the City

There is a lot of great progress happening in Longview that is worth recognizing. Each year, the Mayor delivers his annual "State of the City" speech to highlight the accomplishments, challenges, and opportunities for the Longview community. The speech is also a way to recognize the contributions of individuals, organizations, and businesses who are helping make Longview a great place to live. 

The State of the City Address is usually delivered in conjunction with the Longview Chamber of Commerce fall quarterly luncheon, which is a ticketed event. Tickets are available through the Chamber of Commerce. The city records the speech and makes it available online and on CityView Municipal Television.

Watch last year's State of the City 2018: Longview according to kids. The mayor interviewed students of all ages from area schools to hear what they loved about Longview and how they thought Longview could get even better.
