CPAR / RPAC Mayoral event 2/7/20 @ 10am

Image result for rpac mayor

The Clovis/Portales Board of Realtors will be having a forum for the mayoral candidates on Friday, Feb 7th at 10 a.m.  The Realtors have always taken a tremendous interest in our community and especially this year with electing a new mayor.

The Realtors Political Action Committee will be sponsoring this forum.  RPAC has funds that we can use locally for this race.  We will donate to the candidate who we believe represents our best interests for Clovis.  RPAC is one of the most effective PAC’S in the  country.  The National Association of Realtors, New Mexico Assoc of Realtors, and the Clovis/Portales Board of Realtors are very diligent in selecting who to support for elective offices.  We don’t look at if they are Republicans or Democrats.  We are for who supports Realtor issues-Private property rights, real estate tax benefits, and economic development opportunities.  The local Realtors were very  proactive in supporting the racino. This issue is an example of economic opportunities we support.

This forum will have brief opening statement,  question and answers, and brief closing statement.  The real estate industry  is a very important part of the economic driver in our area. We are very dedicated in moving our community forward and this is a great opportunity to support a mayor who supports economic growth in our area.  Please let us  know if you can attend or not.

Thanks so much and good luck to you all!

Gayla Brumfield

2020 President, Clovis/Portales Board of Realtors

Why this is important!!

Before the end of September the Clovis/Portales Association of REALTORS will be faced with the decision to stay with our current Sentrilock lockbox system with a bluetooth upgraded box, which are owned by NAR, or switch to the Supra Lockbox system which is owned by GE. Change is rarely received well and the Board of Directors must consider many, many issues with this decision. Some of our members may like to stay with the lease system and some may prefer to have each broker purchase their own lockboxes from the chosen company. We are asking the entire membership to participate in this short survey to give feedback on their preferences. Thank you for participating.
