Chamber Endorsement 2014 May

In the Chamber’s practice of providing guidance to its members, for May’s primary election we focus on three county races: county commissioner, clerk and treasurer.

After hearing from all the candidates during the Eggs N’ Issues breakfast held on April 10th and during our in depth interviews, we are excited by the overall caliber of the candidates. We found many high-quality candidates, making our deliberations a greater pleasure and a deeper challenge.

As a business organization, when the North Clackamas Chamber of Commerce weighs who to endorse, it considers the needs and concerns of its members more than any political advantage that may come to the chamber or its board.

Among the factors weighed are relationship with the chamber, voting record on business issues, political acumen, and a consistent ability to avoid the extremes of either major party by working across the aisle.

These endorsements are advisory to our members, especially small business owners who work to serve their customers, supply jobs, make payrolls, and support the community. We hope as we question the candidates that we effectively represent the interests of our members.
