AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Local business owners and community leaders discussed the upcoming presidential election Wednesday morning in Springfield.

The presidential candidates and their policies were the focus at the Springfield Regional Chamber’s October business breakfast at Crestview Country Club.

Political Consultant Tony Cignoli was the keynote speaker for the event. He provided his analysis on the candidates and the upcoming election.

“We try to tell folks not just what they are seeing on network news, so we gave some indication of what the polls are really saying this morning, as of minutes before I spoke in some of the swing states. We also talked about the local campaigns and how important all that is, especially questions on the Massachusetts ballot,” Cignoli said.

He told 22News that how the ballot questions will affect business owners was a major talking point at Wednesday’s breakfast.
