For Immediate Release: March 19, 2014


MONTGOMERY – ProgressPAC, the political arm of the Business Council of Alabama, today announced the first round of endorsements for the 2014 campaign cycle during a board of directors meeting in Montgomery.  Under consideration were candidates for constitutional offices, legislative seats, the State Board of Education and congressional offices.  The ProgressPAC board had previously endorsed statewide judicial candidates during their August 2013 meeting in Point Clear.

 “We have a tremendous first round of pro-business candidates we will be supporting as we move into the 2014 election cycle,” said ProgressPAC chairman Marty Abroms, a Florence accountant with the firm of Abroms and Associates.  “We look forward to working with these and other candidates as we consider additional endorsements in the weeks to come.”
