The HBACA PAC’s Mission is threefold – to Create and Protect Jobs
, Keep Housing Affordable
, and Preserve Arizona’s Unique Way of Life
. We accomplish this by working to elect legislators, city council members and other government officials who are supportive of the home building community. We also communicate with elected officials on a regular basis to ensure they understand how their decisions affect home building and economic development. Finally, the PAC works on your behalf to pass or defeat ballot propositions that will have a positive or negative effect on home building, growth, the economy, education or any other issues affecting quality of life here in Arizona.
Creating and Protecting Jobs
The HBACA PAC’s first and foremost goal is elect candidates who will work with us to create and protect jobs. New home construction and remodeling provides thousands of Arizonans with good, well-paying jobs. In addition to builders themselves, home building creates work for many other trades and professions including carpet and tile installers, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, architects, engineers, landscapers, interior designers, mortgage bankers…the list is endless. In addition to electing candidates, the HBACA PAC leads the fight against any bills or ballot initiatives that threaten to take away good jobs from Arizona families.
Keeping Housing Affordable
What keeps housing affordable? In addition to market conditions and mortgage rates, the other big component affecting housing affordability is government action. Unfair taxes, impact fees and over-regulation all contribute to the huge disparity between new home and existing home sales. Your contributions to the HBACA PAC are used to fund candidates who share our philosophy of fair taxes and fees, and limited government intervention.
Preserving Arizona’s Unique Way of Life
Let’s face it, we live here in Arizona for the beautiful weather, a little more room to breathe, and a slower pace than in the big cities on the coast. With these benefits though come the realities of living in a desert which make energy efficiency, an adequate water supply and dust control of paramount importance. The HBACA PAC works to elect candidates who understand the importance of these issues, while at the same time recognizing the need for balance in order to allow the home building industry to thrive.
