The Apartment Association, California Southern Cities began eight decades ago in Long Beach as a group of owners united to protect their businesses and to improve the rental housing market. Our purpose is to promote, protect and enhance the rental housing industry and to preserve private property rights.
The purpose of the AACSC Political Action Committee (AACSC-PAC) is to finance political efforts supporting California legislative and constitutional officeholders and candidates (but not Federal officeholders, candidates or committees) that benefit the public by improving and protecting Rental Housing for all the people of California.
What Is a Political Action Committee (PAC)?
A PAC is a group of like-minded individuals who come together to achieve political goals. Simply put, PACs raise money to help elect or defeat candidates running for political office.
Actions by city, county and state officials can result in laws that limit your ability to operate your rental housing business, challenge your private property rights and diminish your ability to provide quality housing for your community.
PAC money is also used to defeat issues that affect your business. For example: rent control, property tax increases, cumbersome ordinances and split roll taxes.
What Can I Do?
Contribute generously to AACSC-PAC
We must elect (or re-elect) candidates who understand the importance of property rights and a free market economy and elimination of government interference in our rental housing business. We must be able to stop emerging adverse ordinances from becoming law.
But, California elections are expensive and many cities will elect new officials each election cycle. We need your help. Now more than ever, stay involved, advocate and please donate.
