Candidate Forums Support Community Education on Federal Candidate Positions
Oct 29, 2020
Candidates for federal office within our metro area spoke directly to Economic Alliance members as a part of our 2020 federal candidate forum series earlier this fall. Members had the opportunity to hear directly from both major party candidates for the 1st District Congressional and U.S. Senate.
We offered this series jointly with ImpactCR, the Economic Alliance’s young professionals’ organization, as an opportunity to support the business community’s education on the federal candidates and their positions on important issues. While we are a non-partisan organization that does not endorse political candidates, we do support policies that grow our region and state.
Young professionals have an opportunity to shape our region’s future and are an integral part to growing our population, our economy and our workforce so it is important to have their voice as we talked about the issues facing voters. Educating our members on pro-growth and pro-business issues and encouraging them to vote for candidates that promote our communities is an important part of our advocacy strategy.
