2018 RPAC Supported Candidates

Annually, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) trustees spend days upon days fundraising, but the most important responsibility the trustees have is evaluating the many candidates in Cuyahoga and Summit Counties to determine whether or not they (the candidates) are REALTOR® Party champions worthy of RPAC support. To achieve this, the Trustees evaluate each political candidate’s position on REALTOR® Party issues only, his/her agenda, and electability to determine which campaigns are supported. RPAC is nonpartisan in its selection of candidates. The local Trustees make recommendations to our state and national associations on candidates at those levels as well.

The RPAC Trustees are appointed annually by the Board President to make RPAC decisions. They span the region and are extremely supportive of our advocacy efforts.

Recently, the Trustees of ACAR’s RPAC met over the course of 3 days to review a plethora of General Election campaigns in both Summit County and Cuyahoga County.

A few statistics about the candidate review process:

  • 56 – Number of questionnaires distributed
  • 36 – Number of candidates reviewed
  • 29 – Number of hours spent on interviews and deliberations
  • $80,000  – Dollars invested in local Realtor Party Champion campaigns in 2018 (to date)

The following candidates/campaigns are receiving RPAC support for the General Election. No candidates were endorsed by the Akron Cleveland Association of Realtors. A link to each person’s campaign is included where available.
