In 2011, The Maryland Horse Council (MHC) established the Horse Council Political Action Committee (HCPAC) to further the priorities of the MHC in public forums. The PAC’s primary purpose is to promote the Maryland equine industry to Maryland government and the general public and financially support the campaigns of candidates for state office who support MHC’s policies.
The PAC is currently focused on the next election cycle (Jan 1, 2019 - Dec 31, 2022). There will be change, with new politicians having new agendas, including new views on Maryland horse issues.
Horse Council PAC contributions go into a fund distributed to the campaigns that the PAC selects after consultation with the MHC Executive Committee, Legislative Committee, and Board of Directors.
The current PAC includes Chairwoman Joanne Stone, Vice Chair Jane Seigler, Treasurer Erica Lancaster, and Committee members Christy Clagett, Royce Herman, and Valerie Ormond
Do you have equine-friendly state legislators you would like to support? If so, please provide the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PAC encourages all MHC members to contribute to the PAC fund. Running for public office is expensive, and candidates appreciate and remember their donors. Please give generously here to strengthen our collective voice in Annapolis.
