GilPAC is an independent, nonpartisan organization, sponsored by the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of GilPAC is to become involved in California state and local candidate and ballot measure elections, and in relevant state and local public policy issues, in order to promote the interests of the Chamber, its members, and the business community in the City of Gilroy and throughout the state.
With the launch of GilPAC in 2011, the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce is not only working to influence government decisions, but is also striving further to elect business-friendly candidates.
In 2004 the Chamber created the candidate endorsement program. The Government Relations Committee (GRC) Endorsement Committee evaluated candidates on issues important to the business community and made recommendations to the Chamber’s Board of Directors. Clearly the business community has a louder voice and greater stature now because of the Chamber’s efforts.
