Nov. 13, 2018 – Mayor Donnie Tuck addressed a sold-out Chamber of Commerce luncheon Tuesday, telling attendees that Hampton takes care of business “by being attuned to the needs of our businesses, our partners and our residents.” The Chamber sponsors the annual State of the City luncheon, at which the mayor highlighted some of the city’s successes over the past year.  City Manager Mary Bunting and Superintendent Jeffery Smith also highlighted the city schools’ success Tuesday, particularly the state and national attention that the Academies program has earned. 

Tuck noted several key statistics for Hampton, including:

  • Home sales are up for the 4th year, and the median price of those homes continues to climb.
  • Meals tax revenues are up for the 7th straight year, above $20 million, and sales tax revenues remain above $15 million for the 4th straight year.
  • The economic impact of tourism hit a new high in 2017 and marked the 4th straight year that visitors contributed in excess of $200 million to the economy.
