REALTORS Political Action Committee
The REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) is a committee of 18 trustees who interview
candidates for political office, follow voting records of elected officials and recommend support of
candidates during elections. The Greater Milwaukee Association of REALTORS® (GMAR) members
and the RPAC are involved in political action through calls to action, attending fundraisers, attending
REALTOR® & Government Day in Madison (April 24, 2019) and supporting candidates running for
public office. RPAC supports elected officials who support REALTOR® issues, regardless of
their political party.
Establishing fiscally responsible, commonsense public policy at the federal, state and local levels not
only benefits REALTORS®, but ensures private property rights by protecting the interest of every
American who owns, buys or sells property.
