Association Begins Candidate Interviews for 2023 Municipal Elections

August 20, 2023


As you may know, many of our local municipalities will hold elections for their respective councils/commissions on November 7, 2023. Qualifying for these offices close this week. Shortly afterwards, the Atlanta REALTORS® Political Action Committee (ARPAC) will begin interviewing candidates running in these elections. 

Members of the Atlanta REALTORS® Association Government Affairs Committee, as well as members of the Atlanta Commercial Board of REALTORS® Government Affairs Committee, serve on these screening committees. Candidates are asked a series of questions pertaining to real estate and private property rights issues in our area. Based on the candidates’ responses to these questions, and the candidate’s potential for victory, the screening committee will make a recommendation as to which candidate they believe best represents the interests of REALTORS® and property owners, to the ARPAC-Action Board of Trustees for final approval. 

Information regarding the candidates approved by the Board will be disseminated to association members. In addition to association support, candidates are eligible for PAC contributions and possible campaign services. 

The screening process is expected to be completed by the end of September.
