About the Metro-PAC

Created in 1985, Metro-PAC is an independent political action committee registered with the California Secretary of State. It is authorized to endorse and financially support public initiatives, as well as candidates for local and state office who support and advocate for the policy principles of the Metro Chamber and understand the important role that business plays in regional economic success.

The Metro Chamber is the voice of business in the six-county region. It supports businesses and regional prosperity through its advocacy programs within the framework of its 4-Point Business Promise. Strong Business, Connected Region, Ready Workforce and Vibrant Community. Through these the Metro Chamber strives to cultivate the environment business needs to succeed; connect people, place and commerce; close the gap between business needs and a skilled workforce; and ensure business health through community vitality.

The Metro-PAC is focused on Strong Business. The Metro-PAC amplifies the voice of the Metro Chamber’s member businesses and helps build regional economic prosperity by supporting candidates and issue campaigns that work to foster a supportive business climate, nurture business success, and spur job creation in California’s Capital Region.

The Metro-PAC is about cultivating a political environment where businesses can start up, grow and thrive. This is done through supporting and opposing candidates. The Metro-PAC is committed to supporting candidates who promote and believe in taking actionable steps to creating and maintaining regional prosperity. This means candidates who don’t think that taxing business is the only answer; candidates who seek to actively remove the barriers of cumbersome regulations; candidates who see business owners part of the solution; as we are job creators, employers who want to train and retain quality personnel. Creators who want to build homes, offices, provide food, and solve problems.

To fulfill its mandate, each election cycle, Metro-PAC spends many hours studying issues and vetting candidates at the local and state level in the six-county Capital Region including the counties of El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba.

Metro-PAC’s strategic objectives, fundraising efforts, candidate interviews, issue evaluations, and donations are guided by the Metro-PAC Board.

If you are ready to help amplify the voice of the business community in California’s Capital Region, join and contribute to the Metro-PAC now and make a difference!

Join our efforts and support the candidates and campaigns that elevate the growth of a strong business community, so we can have a more vibrant community. More than ever, we need leaders in government that understand the unique challenges facing our businesses, especially our small businesses, so we can grow a more resilient and inclusive economy.
