To better understand candidate positions on critical business issues, the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce, along with nine chambers from Minnesota’s First Congressional District, have come together to provide their members with a candidate survey in the Congressional race. Randy Demmer, Lars Johnson, Congressman Tim Walz and Steven Wilson, received and completed the questionnaire. The results are now available on the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce’s Web site here.
“We joined nine other local chambers in the 1st District to provide quality information to our members about where these candidates stand,” says John Wade, president of the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce. “This election matters and we clearly focused on issues that are important to the district and the business community.”
The Chamber serves as the lead advocate for business at all levels of government. By developing positions on issues of public policy and communicating these positions, the Chamber creates value for its members. The Chamber provides a forum for the business voice to be heard. As a result, state, local, and federal leaders seek the audience of our members and their opinion with regard to public policy.
