Each election cycle, the East Valley Chambers of Commerce Alliance and the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce publish a local voter’s guide which lists the positions taken by the EVCCA and the candidates endorsed by the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce. These positions and endorsements are reviewed and recommended by volunteers of both the Chamber’s Public Policy committee and the Board of Directors. VIEW THE 2020 VOTER'S GUIDE
All candidates running for elected office were invited to respond to a written questionnaire and to participate in a personal interview with a panel of business owners who volunteer to serve on the Chamber’s Public Policy committee. These volunteers ranked each candidate on criteria including: Past and current community leadership and engagement; Experience with management of complex budgets; Understanding and support of a pro-business environment including experience with dealing with regulation overreach; Ability to represent the community in a professional manner; and the willingness to work with the Gilbert Chamber on policies and issues having significant impact on Gilbert’s business environment. If an incumbent, the candidate’s voting record with the Gilbert Chamber and the EVCCA also were considered.
