PharmPAC - Political Endorsements & Contributions

 

Political Endorsements and Contributions

Endorsement and contribution decisions are made by the PharmPAC Board of Directors.  The Board oversees all PharmPAC operational and financial decisions.  

 

Endorsement of a political candidate allows PharmPAC to publicly indicate its support without necessarily providing a financial contribution.  Often, a candidate seeks an endorsement to use in campaign literature and on a political website.  A candidate certainly wants financial assistance too, but many times, an endorsement can be as important as a contribution.  

 

Endorsements of statewide candidates and other officeholders are determined by the Board, at its sole discretion. The Board considers recommendations for endorsement and/or contributions developed by its staff with input from its Advisory Committee.  However, decisions are made through a balanced endorsement process, which considers the following:

  • TPA membership support;
  • Support by members on the PharmPAC Board;
  • Personal positions regarding TPA policy issues;
  • Voting and/or public support of TPA policy issues;
  • Candidate or officeholder surveys, as appropriate;
  • Legislative leadership position(s);
  • History of being accessible;
  • Probability of being elected; and
  • Candidate interviews by the Board, as needed.  

The composition of the Board strives to reflect the ethic, geographic and practice diversity of Texas pharmacy. Though PharmPAC is a separate entity from TPA - with its own board and bylaws – board members must be TPA members as well as investors in PharmPAC.
