“We are very pleased that voters in Lansing agree that the forward-thinking candidates that we endorsed have the leadership qualities they would like to see on the Lansing City Council,” said Steve Japinga, senior vice president public affairs, Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce. “There is much work to be done as the campaign season gets into full swing. It’s on to November!”

LRC-PAC will determine an appropriate level of support it will provide to assist each of its endorsed candidates in the upcoming campaign. The General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 7.

The LRC-PAC’s endorsement process includes a review of a candidate’s 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.
