You Can Make a Difference
Invest in the future of your business with a contribution to the Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association's Political Action Committee (ORLAPAC). These funds are dedicated to helping elect candidates to office who will work to support the growth of Oregon's hospitality industry.
But we can't do it without your support. The majority of ORLAPAC's donors are small businesses and individuals who give $50 or $100 every year because a strong ORLAPAC is critical to defend tourism funding, pushing key legislation in Salem and fighting meals taxes at the local level.
Non-partisan and business minded
ORLAPAC is an entirely non-partisan PAC and only gives to legislators who have supported the industry's legislation in Salem and to challengers whose election will advance the hospitality industry's legislative agenda.
Strength in numbers
Owners and operators in the hospitality industry have one of the largest political action committees in the state because industry members understand how important it is to back candidates for office who will work to create a climate for private enterprise to succeed in Oregon. ORLAPAC endorsed candidates don't think it is enough that the hospitality industry survives in Oregon, our candidates understand that when the hospitality industry is growing, Oregon is growing and when our industry succeeds, Oregon succeeds.
Defending the hospitality industry everyday is what we do best
ORLAPAC is the only PAC that fights exclusively for hospitality interests in Salem. But we can't do it without you. Your contribution allows ORLAPAC to remain one of the largest, most strategically effective political action committees in the state. You can remain confident that your contribution to ORLAPAC will be one of the strongest political investments you will make in the future of your business.
