Tigard Chamber Now Accepting Requests for Endorsement Consideration for Nov 2020 Tigard City Council Races
Advocating for our business members with government is a key objective for the Tigard Chamber. While legislation can either help or hurt our businesses and our local economy, it really starts with the people, legislators and elected officials crafting and voting in that legislation or proposing a measure to the voters. A unique factor for our chamber businesses, is that many which are located in Tigard, have an owner and employees who reside in neighboring cities who can’t vote on a local measure or candidate that would have an impact on their business.
The Tigard Chamber’s Candidate Endorsement Committee will conduct a non-partisan, fair and equitable process focused on reviewing the qualifications and platforms of candidates in order to endorse those most likely to support business and Tigard Chamber goals, thus increasing the likelihood of pro-business candidates being elected to local offices.
The Candidate Endorsement Committee promotes a vibrant business environment by endorsing candidates who support sound public policy that strengthens the business community and the free enterprise system.
Declared candidates and those undeclared but considering running for Tigard City Council positions are encouraged to ask for endorsement consideration. All those asking for consideration will be sent a confidential questionnaire. Completion of the questionnaire is a necessary step in seeking endorsement. Those not completing a questionnaire will not be considered. The deadline to request endorsement consideration is 6/26/20 midnight. Please email your request for endorsement consideration to CEC@tigardchamber.org
