Get Out & Vote – Locally Supported Candidates

The Asheville HBA works closely with our State Association and other HBA’s to allocate funds through NC Build-Pac to support housing friendly candidates in our area.  As election time has already begun with early voting we want to make sure our members have easily accessible information on Pro-Housing Candidates at their fingertips!

NC BUILD-PAC, the political action committee of the North Carolina Home Builders Association, met throughout the 2013-2014 election cycle to make contribution decisions to pro-housing candidates. As a member service, we have listed, via the link set forth below, the recipients of NC BUILD-PAC contributions for the 2014 election cycle, which includes all contributions made by NC BUILD-PAC to candidates appearing on the general election ballot.

As you know, it is important to your livelihood and to the future housing needs of the citizens of North Carolina that pro-housing candidates are elected to office. Please take the time to vote and encourage your family and employees to do the same.
