Candidates endorsed by The Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee (LRC-PAC) scored big wins during the August 4 primary election. 96% of LRC-PAC endorsed candidates have successfully advanced to the November General Election.

“We are pleased that voters are clearly aligned with the priorities we announced in making our endorsements earlier this summer,” said Tonia Olson, chair, LRC-PAC Board of Directors. “We need elected officials ready to do the hard work of overcoming the setbacks that have occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and are prepared to ensure local budgets are fiscally sound while continuing to provide core services to residents.”

“In these uncertain times, voters certainty made it clear that experience and effective leadership matters,” said Steve Japinga, vice president of public affairs, Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce. “Tuesday’s Primary results are a step in the right direction for our region. Now, it is on to November.” The bipartisan list LRC-PAC endorsed candidates that secured victory in the Primary Election include:

The LRC- PAC’s endorsement process includes a review of a candidate’s past performance, a written questionnaire, and in some cases an in-person interview. Only after this process is completed and a vote of the LRC-PAC Board is taken can a candidate be endorsed and be considered for financial support. LRC-PAC will be making additional general election endorsements after the primary.
