The Board of Directors of the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce today unanimously approved the creation of a Political Action Committee that will enable the organization to make campaign contributions to candidates for state and local offices in Virginia.

With plans to begin making contributions during the 2003 state and local elections, the Chamber will begin raising funds for the Fairfax County Chamber Political Action Committee (PAC) with a $100 a person event at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner on December 17.

Chairman Michael J. Lewis said the formation of the PAC is a critical step in the Chamber's ongoing efforts to connect policy and politics.

All campaign contributions issued by the Fairfax County Chamber Political Action Committee will be directly tied to the legislative priorities established by the Chamber's 125-member Board of Directors.

The PAC will consider making contributions to candidates in Northern Virginia for state and local offices, as well as key legislative races throughout the Commonwealth.

Their votes and positions on the Chamber's legislative priorities are all that matter, and the tough votes will matter most," Lewis said
