About the Metro-PAC

Created in 1985, the Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber Political Action Committee (Metro-PAC) is an independent political action committee registered with the California Secretary of State. It is authorized to endorse and financially support candidates for local and state office who support and advocate for the policy principles of the Metro Chamber, and understand the important role of business towards inclusive economic prosperity for our Capital Region.

By supporting the election of candidates, the Metro-PAC amplifies the voice and policies of the Metro Chamber and its 4-Point Business Promise. Business is not just critical to our economy and workforce, it is also a catalyst for culture and a more equitable community. The Metro-PAC endorses candidates that understand and value the important role of our business community and actively seek to engage and partner with them during their terms. These policies are summarized in our Business Values Statements.

To fulfill its mandate, each election cycle, Metro-PAC spends countless hours studying issues and interviewing candidates at the local and state level in the six-county region including the counties of El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba, before endorsement and financial support.

If you are ready to help amplify the voice of the business community in California’s Capital Region, join and contribute to the Metro-PAC.
