Welcome to our new website!

First, I want to thank you for taking the time to consider what running for Council of our wonderful city means to me.  As a longtime resident, I have witnessed the amazing growth that has taken place, due to the great things Chesapeake has had to offer. 

I have always felt a calling to help people. This strong sense of public service led me to my career of becoming a firefighter. I have been a firefighter in Hampton Roads for 12 years. During my tenure on the Department, I took an interest in training the next generation of firefighters, and have been fortunate enough to have been assigned as Head of the Training Department.  This leadership opportunity has allowed me to instill in my recruits the same core values of honesty, integrity, respect, and service excellence that I believe to be essential in all areas of life.  If I am elected to Chesapeake City Council, I will make decisions according to these same ethics. 

As a firefighter, I know what it means to put the safety and well-being of others ahead of myself. I want to protect Chesapeake and its citizens.  More than 25 years ago, my parents planted roots and chose to raise their family here.  Now, I have chosen to raise my family here, and it is my hope that my children will want to raise their children in Chesapeake one day, too. Like so many of you, I want even more opportunities for my children than I was afforded.  I feel it is my responsibility to leave Chesapeake in a better state for our future generations, and I plan to do this by focusing on:

Schools/Education

Public Safety

Community Engagement

Please take a moment to see where I stand on certain issues in our community.  I welcome and value your feedback because, without community collaboration, trust in government is hard to establish.

In my line of work, no one gets left behind.  As a leader in this city, it will be my duty to protect and ensure Chesapeake, and its citizens, do not get left behind.  I humbly ask for your support in order to grant me the opportunity to put Our Families, Our Safety, and Our Community first.

 

Respectfully,

Levin Turner
