Why GCP has a Political Action Committee and the power of your involvement

Primary election season is in full swing, Iowa and New Hampshire have cast their ballots, and Ohioans will have their say on March 15.

And, don’t forget, Tuesday, February 16 is the deadline to register to vote in Ohio's primary election.

Now, more than ever, the business community needs to be proactive in helping candidates for office work towards common sense solutions in the areas of workforce, workers’ compensation, tax, regulation, health care, energy, economic development, and labor.

Individually, you may choose to support candidates through your contributions and your vote. While the right to vote and your perspective on the issues are crucial, many still believe their voice is not heard throughout the process.

So, what is role of the Greater Cleveland Partnership Political Action Committee (GCP PAC) in amplifying the voice of business?

Stated simply, the GCP PAC is a nonpartisan, member-driven tool that unifies businesses of all sizes and industries in our region and aids us in educating key decision makers on the issues that are important to you. A Political Action Committee provides our members with the means for concerted political action.

And, the dollars contributed through the GCP PAC are used to provide support for state and local governmental leaders campaigning for election who share your interests.

The GCP PAC provides an avenue for you to make a meaningful impact on the process and by collectively mobilizing efforts (and, your engagement), GCP PAC creates synergy. Together, we are greater than the sum of our parts and our strength in numbers allows us to lead the conversation on public policy matters in Ohio.

PLEASE NOTE: Individuals, limited liability companies (LLCs), partnerships and sole proprietorships can legally make contributions to a PAC. Contributions must include itemized allocations by partners in partnerships or members of a LLC. Ohio law prohibits other corporate political contributions.

Your participation in the GCP PAC is completely voluntary and you may contribute as much or as little as you choose. You may choose not to participate without fear of reprisal. You will not be favored or disadvantaged by reason of the amount of your contribution or decision not to contribute.
