The Governmental Affairs Department works closely with local, state and federal elected officials on issues vital to our members’ livelihood. Forging and nurturing positive relationship with our elected officials is essential for our association and its effectiveness on the political front.
The HBA of Raleigh-Wake County Board of Directors met on Monday, August 26th and voted to endorse candidates in the Raleigh municipal elections. This was completed after multiple weeks of interviews where all candidates received an invitation.
The slate of candidates that were selected represent individuals who demonstrate an interest in moving Raleigh forward as it continues to grow, being proactive in reaching out to stakeholders when tackling difficult issues and giving great attention to housing affordability while meeting the needs of all of Raleigh.
The HBA of Raleigh-Wake County proudly endorses:

Through these efforts we are able to identify those politicians who are willing to listen to our issues and consider our point of view. This is where BUILD-PAC becomes invaluable.
The HBA BUILD-PAC (political action campaign) represents the recognition by our members that those elected into office are critical to the housing and development industry. Through generous contributions we are able to fund the best qualified and most worthy candidates for local office.
Because BUILD-PAC is bipartisan it affords us political clout in the election process. If you would like to support your industry, the most effective thing you can do is give a contribution to BUILD-PAC.
