The breakfast, held in Smith Hall at Randolph College, was attended by area businesspeople to hear their legislators’ priorities before the General Assembly reconvenes Jan. 10. About 75 business leaders were in attendance.

Sen. Mark Peake, R-Lynchburg; Del. Ben Cline, R-Rockbridge; and Del. Scott Garrett, R-Lynchburg; discussed topics ranging from broadband to health care.

The top concerns from Alliance members remain broadband access, economic development, education, health care and workforce, Alliance Chief Operating Officer Christine Kennedy said Tuesday.
