Periodically, the Metro Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee issues candidate endorsements for upcoming municipal and state elections. Not every local and state race receives an endorsed candidate, and at this time, the Metro Chamber does not issue endorsements for federal races or judicial elections.
Endorsement decisions are made by the Metro Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee (GAC), comprised of members from a variety of business sizes and industries. Invited candidates are interviewed by members of the GAC and the endorsements are made based on a candidate’s knowledge and understanding of business issues, voting record (when applicable), as well as dedication to creating a good environment for business growth, job creation and economic development.
Please stay tuned as the Metro Chamber announces its endorsements for the 2018 election cycle next year.
