It has revived a Political Action Committee, or PAC, called the ["Davis ChamberPAC"] (aka Business Issues Committee). Only Chamber members can contribute to the ChamberPAC (so, given the above statistics, many Davis downtown retailers could not be contributors to the ChamberPAC). The stated purpose of the Davis ChamberPAC is "to support (or oppose) local, county or state ballot measures and candidates which impact the business environment in Davis." The Davis ChamberPAC was created by vote of the Board of Directors in December 1997, edited in 2003 to increase the maximum monetary contribution from $500 to $1000 and edited in February 2012 to broaden the scope of efforts to include support of candidates.<br> - <br> - Some have questioned the legality of accepting such large donations; this practice seems (to many) to defy the spirit if not the letter of [http://qcode.us/codes/davis/view.php?topic=12-12_01-12_01_035&amp;frames=off Municipal Code 12.01.035], which, in general, serves to prohibit wealthy businesses and individuals from having an undue influence on local politics through large financial contributions.<br> - <br> - Ironically, the ChamberPAC denies that the 2010 "Citizens United" Supreme Court decision played any part in their recent actions. According to Kemble Pope, "Let's be very clear that the Davis Chamber PAC's ability to raise and spend money in this manner has absolutely nothing to do with the Citizens United ruling." This statement seems strange, given that the controversial landmark decision is probably the most reasonable justification for arguing that the PAC can safely ignore the local ordinance (by claiming it has been trumped). However, given that the vast majority of Americans disagree with the Supreme Court's decision, and that it could significantly alter the traditional Davis political climate, it is probably a wise PR move for the PAC not to mention it. Furthermore, nearly half of the country's states are currently trying to argue that the SCOTUS decision might not apply to elections on the state and local level.<br> - <br> - It wasn't until May of 2012 that much of the PAC's legal reasoning became clearer to the general public. The PAC believes that it is legal and acceptable to bypass the normal reading of the law by slipping candidate names into relatively small spaces of Measure D advertisements. Under this interpretation of the law, the PAC can spend thousands of dollars more on candidates than they would normally be allowed, simply by being subtle.<br> - <br> - ["2012 City Council Election/Measure D" Measure D] is the Parks Renewal Tax, which the PAC (as well as most of the community) believes benefits many local businesses and the general Davis community. The proposition is the extension of the original Measure D of 2002 that passed with a whopping 79% of the vote. To most people, this would imply that an extension would not require any advertisements in order to gain support, even during an economically tough time.<br> - <br> - In the May 20th, 2012 edition of the ["Davis Enterprise"], the ChamberPAC released its first print advertisement. Although it is primarily an ad for the populist Measure D, it also includes the names of the PAC's endorsed candidates for city council. The ad states that the endorsed candidates support Measure D, while ignoring the fact that the other candidates support it as well. In an official public disclosure, the PAC claimed candidate expenditures of only about $40 on the nearly $600 ad. This adds more fuel to the fire of the existing controversy of whether or not the PAC should have legally been allowed to co-mingle funds for both the candidates and Measure D in the first place.<br> - <br> - The ChamberPAC has endorsed ["Stephen Souza"], ["Dan Wolk"], and ["Lucas Frerichs"] for the ["2012 City Council Election"]. [http://davisvanguard.org/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=article&amp;id=5317:analyzing-the-chambers-endorsements&amp;Itemid=83 The Vanguard has questioned these endorsements], given that "[i]t was Stephen Souza who, on the brink of the economic collapse, insisted that the city had a balanced budget and a 15% reserve, despite at that time what was $13 million in deferred maintenance" and that "[i]t was Stephen Souza who helped pushed through not only the budget in 2009 by a 3-2 vote, but the series of MOUs in 2009 and 2010 that did little to change the status quo. He was the swing vote on all of those and went against the side of fiscal sustainability." Souza also actively promoted Second Street Crossing (the site of ["Target"]) in 2006, which some believe has harmed Davis businesses such as the now out-of-business ["Alphabet Moon"].<br> - <br> - Some members of the community have asked the ChamberPAC to provide a more detailed description of the internal voting process and how it led to the endorsement of the selected candidates. Specifically, the public would like to know which candidates each Chamber PAC member voted for and how this led to a collective decision. Thus far, it is unclear if a unanimous consensus was achieved or if there was even a formal voting process at all. According to Kemble Pope, "There was hours of discussion, dissent and arguing. We came to consensus on Frerichs, Wolk &amp; Souza for a variety of reasons that have been stated over and over again."<br> - <br> - The voting members of the ChamberPAC are: Steve Greenfield (a principal with a civil engineering firm), Kemble Pope (consultant, Souza's 2008 campaign manager), Gregg Herrington (real estate developer), Michael Bisch (real estate agent) and Tom Cross (property management).<br> - <br> - It is interesting to note that all three endorsed candidates are contributors to executive director Kemble Pope's blog, ["The Davis Voice"]. The two unendorsed candidates have never contributed. Furthermore, Pope was a campaign consultant for endorsed candidate Souza's 2008 election bid.

They are all collaborative, solution oriented leaders.<br> + <br> + We endorse Frerichs, Souza and Wolk because they each have a plan for generating economic vitality and jobs for the community. Frerichs wants to "Create an environment that encourages people to spend their dollars in our community." He hopes to do so by finding a better solution for parking downtown and by creating a business-friendly atmosphere. Souza believes in the need to focus on economic development in the coming Council term. He suggests that the city: "Continue efforts with UCD and the business community" to see construction of more innovation hubs, and the opening of more jobs as a result. Wolk believes in Davis as a "thriving regional economic center", but wants to see us be even better. He hopes to accomplish this by reducing bureaucratic barriers to business at the city-level and by providing targeted incentives for companies to relocate here.<br> + <br> + The ChamberPAC has also endorsed Measure D, the Parks Renewal Tax, and encourages citizens to renew this parcel tax that protects our high quality of life. The special amenities provided by the City of Davis improve the quality of life of the citizens and also benefit the business community. City parks are an important component of the quality of life in developed areas, and adequate maintenance is essential both to assure parks perform that function and to prevent degradation on park properties.<br> + <br> + This measure will ensure not only that our parks are well-maintained, but that our greenbelts and city recreation programs are sustained as well. Each of these amenities adds greatly to the character of Davis that we have all come to know and love. The Davis ChamberPAC is committed to ensuring that we maintain this character, which helps to bring business into our community and which adds so much to the high quality of life that we all enjoy.<br> + <br> + Since 1992, when the State of CA began taking additional local property taxes from cities to help fund state programs, the voters of Davis have taxed themselves to pay for amenities like high quality parks, schools and libraries. The ChamberPAC has been proud to support these efforts since 1997.<br> + <br> + ChamberPAC efforts are not intended to start and end with the June election.
