PAC Chairwoman Sue Ansel concluded her two-year term with a strong push at the end of 2017 with 160 NMHC member firms and 1,304 generous individuals supporting the PAC. Her leadership resulted in a record-setting year and exceeded the $1.25 million goal by raising $1,495,917.
The strong support of NMHC PAC ensures that our members can have a direct impact on our allies in Congress and have a voice in the public policy debates that are critical to the industry’s bottom line. This has never been more important than over the last months of the tax reform debate which resulted in a number of our key principles being included in the landmark tax reform bill.
NMHC PAC strategically disbursed over $1.4 million to 250 federal candidates that are on key committees and in leadership positions. Information on PAC disbursements can be found here.
