There are over 9,000 Realtor members of the Orlando Regional Realtor Association, and every one of us should support RPAC. Everybody complains about their elected officials, but what do you really do about it? RPAC supports Realtor issues which are our customers' issues too. We are the biggest proponents of property rights and put forth a tremendous effort and a lot of money to promote these issues. The only way we can stay in the lead on property rights and other issues important to Realtors and our customers is through RPAC. We cannot expect our elected officials to be experts in every issue that comes up. One way that they are educated about the importance and impact of their decisions is through our lobbying efforts funded by your RPAC contribution. Sometimes these same public servants need our help with an issue that important to them and us. RPAC has been able to step up to help fund special issues that effect the quality of life for us here in Orlando.
People often complain of special interest groups and the influence they have on City Hall, Tallahassee and Washington DC. I cannot imagine anyone that is not somehow a part of several of these special interest groups. Keep in mind that these groups are as diverse as our population and include not only Realtors, but teachers, police, firefighters, military, doctors, lawyers, grocers, retail, hotel and motel, tourism, healthcare, small business, and big business alike. Supporting RPAC is a way to get involved and help assure that the Realtor voice is heard here in Orlando at the state and federal levels of government. Besides all that, this Friday at the Winter Park Civic Center you can have all the barbecue you can eat for $10 starting at 5:30pm. The auction starts at 7:00pm.
