WHAT IS MACPAC?
MACPAC is a political action committee, or PAC. PACs give money to candidates running for elective office. In MACPAC’s case, it will only give money to incumbent state legislators who have a record of being a friend to counties.
By making a donation to MACPAC, you will become a member of MACPAC. As a member of MACPAC, you will have the chance to shape Lansing policy and have a lot of fun doing it.
See the MACPAC brochure.
MACPAC members will have the opportunity to meet with legislators on important topics and attend MACPAC events and fundraisers with other members from around the state. These functions and other membership activities will enable you to become well-versed in state and federal legislative issues. As a MACPAC member, you will be a part of our strong grass-roots effort, and you can make the opportunity what you wish it to be. You will have access to information, experience, and MAC’s knowledgeable staff — the perfect combination to help MAC become an even stronger voice on behalf of your county.
MACPAC is the best way for you to protect your county’s best interest in the state Legislature. MACPAC will support legislators who have a record of protecting local control, supporting full payment for mandated services and reducing the burden the state has placed on counties. Your contribution will help increase MAC’s visibility in the Legislature, growing the influence of our already strong organization.
MACPAC gives you the power to change the way the Legislature does business with county government by linking you to the other 622 commissioners in the state, all speaking with one voice across every House and Senate district. Your contribution strengthens and amplifies our county voice.

Why Should I Donate?
Actions taken at the State Capitol all too often change the duties, resources and direction of county government. To ensure the best possible local governance for residents of Michigan, county leaders need to work in partnership with state officials. MACPAC was created to foster this partnership, by identifying and assisting state legislators who support public policies of benefit to counties and county government.
Your donations to MACPAC are translated into donations to these key legislators. MAC staffers work with these lawmakers to ensure the expertise, experience and concerns of county officials are given proper consideration in the legislative process.
Remember, MACPAC is the only political action committee devoted to assisting legislators who are allies of county government.
Contributions to MACPAC are not tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes as charitable contributions.
