MADISON – The board of directors for the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce has released its remaining endorsements for the spring election of the Madison Common Council.
District 2: Bryan Post
District 6: Scott Thornton
District 12: Larry Palm
“The Chamber endorsed these candidates because they understand the city should balance regulations, development plans and public input to find ways to help businesses innovate, grow jobs and succeed,” said Delora Newton, vice president of advocacy.
Early endorsements for 11 candidates were announced Feb. 8, 2013 in conjunction with private-sector unions. Endorsements were not made in every district.
The endorsements are being released as President Zach Brandon is laying out his vision to put the Madison region on the global stage as an innovation hub.
“Madison leads in innovation and entrepreneurialism,” said Newton. “The Chamber’s endorsement highlights candidates who understand the region’s potential and have the commitment to achieve it.”
