Chamber’s ProsperityPAC announces municipal candidate endorsements
ProsperityPAC is the political action committee of the Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce and is formed to support candidates and issues that impact both public and private sector economic and community development, as well as encouraging citizens to seek public office.
Based on past records and candidate understanding of the Chamber's mission and public policy agenda, the Board of Directors of ProsperityPAC at this time have voted to support the following candidates in the upcoming municipal candidate election -- set for Tuesday, Aug. 23:
• Decatur City Council - District 4: Eugene McNutt
• Decatur City Council - District 5: Chuck Ard
“The two candidates we endorse at this time best align with the Chamber’s public policy agenda and represent our mission of economic growth and development,” said John Seymour, secretary/treasurer of ProsperityPAC and president and CEO of the Chamber.
ProsperityPAC encourages all Chamber members to exercise their right to vote and hope they would consider supporting those candidates that support business and community issues that impact us all.
ProsperityPAC was established by members of the Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce who believe in order to promote the maintenance of the free enterprise system, there should be an opportunity for widespread participation in the political process by members of the Chamber, their employees and others who may wish to take part. This separate fund was set up to promote and facilitate the receipt of voluntary contributions in support of various candidates for election to state and local offices in Alabama.
