A primary function of the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) is to screen candidates running for public office and recommend for election those are sensitive to issues related to real estate, homeownership, and private property rights.
Locally, members of the ORRA RPAC Candidate Screening Subcommittee consider each candidate up for election based on his or her past voting record and/or empathy to real estate issues. Candidates are invited to participate in a screening process and interview before the subcommittee presents its candidate recommendations to the ORRA Board of Directors for final approval.
ORRA supported candidates who accept political action committee (PAC) funds are eligible to receive contributions from the REALTORS® Political Action Committee for use in their campaign.
For more information about the screening process or about RPAC please contact Frankie Elliott, ORRA vice president of governmental affairs, at email@example.com.
