Endorsement Process

San Clemente City Council Candidate Endorsement Process

The candidate endorsement process was established to provide a service to the community through the Chamber’s evaluation of each candidate’s qualifications as they align with our current community’s needs, with a focus on the Chamber’s business members.


In the case of city council elections, all candidates are eligible and invited to participate in the endorsement process, which includes the completion of a thoughtfully prepared questionnaire, interview with the BBSC-PAC committee, and participation in a candidate forum.


During the interviews, candidates are asked about issues that affect both businesses and residents.


At times, the San Clemente Chamber of Commerce will support candidates, issues and/or propositions and legislative matters that may affect the San Clemente business community. For 2022, the candidate endorsement results can be viewed here.


For more information regarding the BBSC-PAC, we invite you to contact our office.
