Letter: Questions were raised about portfolios

I note Ms Pinson has denied that I asked her a question at the Meet the Candidates function last year (Port News, Letters, July 12, 2017).

I re-iterate that I did indeed ask the question of her concerning the portfolio and committee system in open forum, in a loud clear voice, in front of all attendees and candidates. 

I cannot understand why Ms Pinson would now deny it. As chamber president I write columns monthly on matters of policy and concern to business.  I am pleased to see Ms Pinson is among my many readers.
