A Vote of Confidence Revealed in Seattle
The Seattle Metropolitan Chamber recently revealed the results of two polls (each conducted by different research firms) that show that Seattle voters view the chamber favorably and would be more likely to vote for a candidate backed by the chamber. View survey questions and results.
While the chamber does not directly make candidate endorsements, its political affiliate, the Civic Alliance for a Sound Economy (CASE), has played a major role in the 2013 primary elections. As a result of CASE’s work, all of the candidates it endorsed will be appearing on the general election ballot this November. Goes to show that a good government relations program can make a difference!
According to the chamber, “Not only are these poll findings positive reinforcement of our work, but they also counteract some long-held ‘conventional wisdom’ about the influence that candidates receive from Chamber support.”
