A Message from GAR

Dear Members,

November is here and we are well into the 4th quarter of 2020.

The 2020 local elections are over, and your association has been particularly active getting the voices of our over 500 members heard. Your RPAC dollars were put to work to get our unified message out on key initiatives and supporting candidates who will support these initiatives as well as other issues important to us. Not only did we launch an aggressive marketing campaign using RPAC funds, but GAR also joined forces with Action PAC to further solidify our efforts. I, along with our legislative committee chair, John Duenas, also made the rounds with the local radio stations to promote that.

The GAR legislative committee worked hard to set up a candidate forum with predetermined questions. From there, we established our list of candidates to support and sent our message out. GAR then launched a campaign to advertise candidates we wanted to support and 5 main initiatives important to our industry.

“YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE” campaign was launched on all media platforms and aired up until the election. It was important to get the message out to encourage voting and I thank you all for exercising that right.

Out of the 16 candidates we supported, 9 have been successful in their bid for a senatorial seat in the Guam Legislature. Alternatively, out of the 5 initiatives, one has been signed into law. Our campaign has been a success, but our work is far from being over. RPAC will continue to be a main part of our work. The three main pillars of RPAC are to vote, act and invest. I ask and encourage all of us to do all three. This is your REALTOR® Party working hard for you.

Looking forward, your GAR leadership will continue to ensure that we have a seat as stakeholders for legislation that may be introduced. Our goal is to have a continued working relationship with our lawmakers and other island leaders to promote an effectively led Guam for our future. The pursuit of homeownership is inherent and we at the Guam Association of REALTORS® will continue to advocate a standard of excellence in real estate for our members and the island community.

Thank you.

Be safe and be well

2020 President, Guam Association of REALTORS®

RPAC means VOTE, ACT and INVEST.

It is the voice of REALTORS® in the Legislature and Congress halls. It is Your Best Investment in Real Estate.

RPAC is a voluntary program and provides the “hard” dollars the association uses to make direct contributions to national, state and local candidates. Launched in 1969 as the Real Estate Political Education Committee (REPEC), RPAC supports candidates of any party who understand and champion real estate issues. It is the most bipartisan major PAC in the country. Political expenditures are divided nearly evenly among Republicans and Democrats based on their support of real estate issues. In 1974, NAR changed REPEC’s name to RPAC.

A suggested fair share contribution is included in the membership dues billing once a year that is completely optional, however, highly recommended. As member, you may choose to invest more than the fair share indicated in your Dues billing. At any point in time during a year, you may elect to invest electronically by clicking here, or with a personal check, payable to RPAC and deliver or mail it to: 424 West O'Brien Drive, Suite 236A Julale Center, Hagatna, Guam 96910.

Per IRS rule, RPAC investments are not tax deductible. Your investments are always voluntary and are used for political purposes.

70% of your investment is retained in our GAR RPAC and can be used in state/local political related activities. 30% is sent to the NAR RPAC to support federal candidates.
