Political Advocacy 

What does the ABC advocacy team do?

  • Represent members and the merit shop philosophy at local, state and federal level legislative meetings, hearings, press conferences and other forums
  • Educate the community about legislation, candidates and elections
  • Ignite grassroots efforts (letter campaigns, phone calls, legislative visits) to support critical issues
  • Political fundraising to support construction-friendly candidates and legislation

Where do you come in?

  • As a constituent, you have a vital role to play in the legislative process. When you take the time to write, call or visit representatives in-person, they listen and take what you say into consideration. 
  • Your story CAN change their view on the issues that affect you, your employees and your community.
  • Additionally, grassroots political activity does not require the outlay of substantial amounts of money, is readily doable by most of us, and affords us a menu approach to participation: hosting meetings at your home or office, obtaining signatures on petitions, writing letters or emails to editors and legislators, putting up posters, and discussing pending legislation and candidates at informational meetings.
