Endorsed Local Ballot Issues

Ballot Review Process

The Chamber Board of Directors’ Executive Committee initiates review of any local ballot measures, after certification with the respective public entity, which leads to the Chamber’s Local Issues Task Force convening. The Local Issues Task Force assists the board of directors in establishing policy positions on local ballot issues and is comprised of individuals with diverse industry perspectives.

The established format of a Local Issues Task Force review meeting includes inviting staff of the public entity involved in the ballot issue to provide an educational overview of the issue, then proponents and opponents of the issue are invited to present. Following this review, the Local Issues Task Force Chair makes a recommendation to the Chamber board for its decision regarding endorsement.

There are currently no Chamber-endorsed ballot measures up for voter consideration.
