FCBR Advocacy Efforts Feature by NAR as Success Story
The National Association of REALTORS® choose State and local REALTOR® Associations around the country that are taking advantage of REALTOR® Party tools and resources to step up their community outreach and advocacy efforts. These are success stories are chosen because they inspire and set precedents for other associations throughout the country. FCBR is pleased to announce that our efforts to use statistically valid polling to help inform our City Councils consideration of extending term limits has been recognized as a national REALTOR® Party success story.
Ft. Collins (CO) REALTORS®Commission Poll Showing What Voters Really Think About City Council Proposal When the Fort Collins, Colorado City Council began floating the idea of extending its term limits, the Fort Collins Board of REALTORS® (FCBR) suspected that the citizens may not be for it. The 775-member board worked with NAR’s Campaign Services staff and commissioned a poll to take a look. The poll revealed that citizens were not only against extending the term limits of its City Council, but also did not want to spend $100,000 in tax dollars to bring the issue to a special election. The board provided the poll results to the City Council members and gave the information to the local paper, which resulted in a front page story. The Council decided drop the idea.
Don't forget to invest in RPAC as FCBR continues to leverage your investments locally. We believe that this effort and NAR's recognition is a great example of how your REALTOR® & Consumer Advocacy Department is putting RPAC dollars to work on behalf of REALTOR® and our community.
