Mission, October 10, 2018 – After a failed attempt to have both sides represented in the conversation at our October 11th Proportional Representation Discussion, The Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce will be withdrawing support of this event.
The Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce has always been a nonpartisan organization, working across the political spectrum for the benefit of our members and community. It is essential that The Chamber of Commerce display an absolute degree of nonpartisanship, supporting this event raises an unacceptable perception that we may be otherwise.
We apologize sincerely for any inconvenience or miss-communications around this event. We encourage all of our members to actively invest in understanding both sides of this important issue, and the proportional representation options in advance of the referendum. This week's event will still be taking place but is now officially Andrew Wilkinson's event. Any payment collected for this event via The Chamber of Commerce will be refunded.
President, Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce
