SAN LEANDRO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE POLITICAL ACTION COMITTEE (sl pac)
What is a pac?
A PAC or Political Action Committee is a 501(c)(6) voluntary nonprofit, which receives contributions to use for political purposes, such as making contributions or independent expenditures to support or oppose candidates and ballot measures, or making contributions to political parties and other state and local campaign committees as outlined by the California Fair Political Practice Commission.
About the Pac
Founded in 2011, the San Leandro Chamber PAC seeks to endorse business-oriented candidates at the Local, County, and National levels who would be elected based on their platform to support the San Leandro business community. These candidates must be proven to support fiscally responsible government, the free enterprise system, and understand the important role businesses play in the economic prosperity for San Leandro.
Every election year, the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce and Political Action Committee (Chamber PAC) endorses candidates in races critical to San Leandro’s future. The endorsement process includes a review of candidate statements/materials, a candidate forum, and candidate interviews.
