To strengthen the voice of the food processing industry in the public policy arena, CLFP established the CLFP Political Action Committee (PAC). WHAT IS THE CLFP PAC? The CLFP PAC raises funds to support state legislative candidates of any party affiliation who are committed to working for the best interests of California agriculture and the food processing industry. Since its formation in 1993, the CLFP PAC has made it a priority to help elect state legislative candidates who truly understand the need to support job growth and economic development – and defeat those who do not. If an individual business acts alone it is often extremely difficult for them to make a significant political impact. The CLFP PAC offers those in the food processing industry organized political action to elect candidates who advocate policies that ensure economic certainty and stability in California. HOW THE CLFP PAC WORKS: The CLFP PAC was developed so that food processors could collectively impact legislative campaigns.The PAC contributes to candidates based on their past and continuing support of the food processing and business community’s agenda and makes decisions with the ultimate goal of creating a strong and prosperous economy for the state. WHY CONTRIBUTE TO THE CLFP PAC? The PAC supports elected officials who fight to protect your business from trial lawyer attacks, costly environmental and workplace mandates and other anti-business legislation so that California’s economic recovery stays on track. “Our fundraising strength will serve as a reminder to political leaders that food processors remain important stakeholders in California's future. With the continued support of CLFP members, our voice will be heard in the halls of the state Capitol,” said CLFP PAC Chair Mona Shulman of Pacific Coast Producers HOW DO YOU CONTRIBUTE?
