The importance of our PAC as Election Day nears

Sante Ghetti |

We are about a month away from Election Day and early voting in Ohio begins on October 12. In addition to voting, there are a number of ways you can ensure your individual voice and the voice of the business community is heard throughout the political process, but no tool may be more useful than having the ability to collectively pool our resources together to provide our members with the means for concerted political action. And, the dollars contributed through the Greater Cleveland Partnership’s Political Action Committee are specifically used to provide support for state and local governmental leaders campaigning for election who share your interests.

Please consider making your contribution of $50, $100, $500, or $1,000 to GCP PAC prior to the Election Day on Tuesday, November 8, so we can continue to lead the conversation in the development of common sense economic policy and regulatory reform.  

The decisions government officials make impact all aspects of our lives, including your ability to conduct business in Ohio and achieve success. Participation in the process is not a requirement, but it is crucial business leaders and their elected representatives take action together to support the kind of environment in which you and your business can thrive. GCP PAC is a non-partisan, unified voice for businesses of all sizes and industries in our region and aids businesses in educating key decision makers on the issues that are important to you.
