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 facing Longview. The speech is also a way to recognize 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. The city records the speech and makes it available online and on CityView Municipal Television.
