“The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce PAC is pleased to support the above slate of candidates who best understand the importance of maintaining a pro-business environment and who are willing to collaborate in order to advance public policy that allows our businesses to prosper, grow and create new jobs while enjoying long-term economic stability,” said Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce PAC Chairman John W. Moody.

“The PAC is a cornerstone of the Greater Phoenix Chamber, vital to our mission of avocation for and supporting our member businesses,” said Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Todd Sanders. “As they did in the primary, the PAC board chose to make election endorsements for the general election of those whose policies and agendas are most closely aligned with the overall mission of the Chamber to boost Arizona’s economy through job creation and business retention and expansion. These candidates deeply care about the business climate in Arizona and we are proud to offer them our endorsement.”

The GPCC PAC was established in 1978 to help pro-business candidates get elected to state, county and local offices and ultimately improve the overall business climate in Greater Phoenix. The Chamber first became a Super PAC in 2003—the first Chamber in Arizona to achieve this elite distinction which allows the PAC to drastically increase its support of pro-business candidates. To date, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce is one of two chambers in the state of Arizona to achieve Super PAC status.
