People's Alliance PAC takes endorsements very seriously.  We seek applicants’ statements about their qualifications and conduct applicant interviews. We make our own independent examination of each applicant’s background and record of public service. This information is reported to the members of the People’s Alliance who deliberate together and vote to determine which candidates, if any, will receive the PAC’s endorsement. At our endorsement meetings, all members stand on an equal footing and debate continues until every member who wishes to be heard has been given the opportunity to speak. The People's Alliance PAC then uses its resources to promote the appointment of the applicant we endorse.  Because of the thoroughness of our inquiry and the integrity of our process, the endorsement of the People’s Alliance PAC is sought after by applicants and is respected by the governor. VISIT OUR FAQ PAGE to learn more about the endorsement meeting process.
