The PAC serves as the political arm of the Chamber that interviews and endorses candidates for public office. The PAC is run by a 9-member committee that takes positions on ballot questions and endorses candidates for public office. The PAC authorizes contributions to candidates, fundraisers, and issue and ballot advocacy campaigns. The PAC is funded separately from the Chamber.
It is vital that the business community is involved in the political process. Everything you do everyday as a business owner is affected by some level of government, whether it is getting approval for a new building, how and how much you pay your employees, your health and workers comp insurance costs, the taxes you pay, the roads that you and your employees drive on, and the schools that your children and future workforce attend.
The Chamber supports and works with candidates and public officials who support YOU and your ability to create jobs and provide quality of life for all of the residents in our region.
