BARPAC – Invest Locally.
“All politics is local,” though former Speaker of the House Tip O’Neil is often attributed with this line, he never said it. As a handy journalistic cliché it may never die, however, but what Speaker O’Neil actually said was, “all politics is personal.” Whichever version you prefer, BARPAC allows you to invest both in local politics and build mutually beneficial relationships between public policymakers and the local REALTOR® community.
INVEST LOCALLY! Your investment in BARPAC keeps your money and influence at home in the communities we serve.
We harness and maximize our political influence through BARPAC by:
- Promoting local REALTOR® champions, 100% of your investment in BARPAC will go to supporting candidates for municipal and countywide office within BAR’s jurisdiction.
- Taking the lead role, your investment in BARPAC allows BAR to be more forward-thinking on issues affecting our industry. The flexibility of a local PAC allows BAR to be more nimble and proactive around local issues.
