Do You Love Your Job?
If the answer is ‘yes,’ then, the RPAC is your new best friend.
RPAC enables REALTORS® to support candidates that support the issues that are important to their profession and livelihood. For example, Congressman LaTourette(R) has voted for repeal of 1099 reporting requirements for businesses and landlords and National Flood Insurance Program reauthorization, which are NAR-supported issues. Locally, RPAC supported Ed FitzGerald (D) for County Executive. Executive FitzGerald has been working to improve certain real estate related issues, like the Boards of Revision backlog, etc. Ohio Senator Tom Patton (R) led the charge for REALTOR® license plates, and has been a huge supporter on housing issues for us. We use RPAC to help keep folks like that in office.
On June 14, 2012 CABOR will be hosting a Silent & Live Auction to benefit RPAC.RPAC Auction Registration
RPAC contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The amount suggested is merely a guideline and you may contribute more or less than the suggested amount. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS® or any of its state associations or local boards will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. 70% of each contribution is used by your state PAC to support state and local political candidates. Until your state PAC reaches its RPAC goal 30% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 2 U.S.C. 441a; after the state PAC reaches its RPAC goal it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates.
