HUNTINGTON — The Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee (HuntPAC) has announced its endorsements for the May 2022 primary election.

Candidates running in Cabell and Wayne counties in races considered important to the Chamber’s business community were selected for endorsement.

Questionnaires were sent to candidates in these races, which were a part of HuntPAC’s decision-making process. Only candidates who return questionnaires are considered for endorsement.

HuntPAC uses a variety of information in making its decisions. For incumbents, voting record, previous leadership positions and contributions to community and economic development projects are carefully weighed.

For non-incumbents, candidate questionnaires play an important role in helping to determine how a candidate will work as an elected official.

“HuntPAC endorses candidates who are pro-business in their philosophy,” said Rob Sellards, Chair of HuntPAC. “Our goal is to let the business community know who we have identified as being candidates that are not only good for business, but also good for the community as a whole.”
