With the dedication from the MITA membership and a lot of effort put forth by a lot of you, the MITA PAC has reached its goal of raising $250,000 in 2022 having raised over $252,000 thus far. This was made possible by more than 222 donations either one time or recurring which is something every single one of you who donated should be proud of. This amount of money raised in the MITA PAC elevated our political giving into one of the top business PACs in the state and allowed us to be very active this past election cycle, setting us up for success in the upcoming year and beyond.
The MITA PAC has never, in its history, raised this amount. And is a testament to the commitment that the membership put towards the PAC this year. We had a plethora of new donors that contributed this year and many companies that had multiple employees donate. In addition, it is the first year that we have had members make recurring donations on an ongoing basis.
While this is great news and has set MITA up for success with the new, ever-changing Legislature, we cannot, however, take our foot off the gas. The MITA staff will continue to reach for this goal and expand upon it for future years. This level of strength in our PAC will undoubtedly help in our goal of reaching a long-term, sustainable infrastructure funding solution.
It is with sincere gratitude that we THANK YOU for your contributions and efforts to get your colleagues and your industry peers to contribute as well. We had a substantial amount of members giving to the PAC for the very first time and we hope that it becomes a trend for everyone to step up to the plate and collectively help the industry reach our goal of long-term, sustainable infrastructure funding as well as many other legislative objectives.
