Endorsements for the 2016 California Elections
As directed by the TahoeChamber Board of Directors, the TahoeChamber Candidate Endorsement Committee (TC-CEC) used the pillars of the Chamber’s adopted Tahoe Future A South Shore Community Vision 2020 as the foundational criteria for evaluating candidates.
The pillars include:
- Economic Vitality
- Quality of Life
- Intellectual Capital
The endorsements were developed through an extensive process including a review of candidate answers to the Chamber’s written questionnaire, personal interviews, a review of all available candidate statements and published materials, performance at candidate forums, campaign websites and a review of voting records, as applicable.
The CEC members independently completed a scorecard (example) on each candidate and shared those during their final meeting. The scores were listed with the highest and lowest eliminated. An average percentage score was then calculated for each candidate with the highest scoring candidate(s) receiving a recommendation for an endorsement.
The TC-CEC recommendations for endorsements.
