Guest Column by Derek Ramsay, KCRAR VP for REALTOR® Advocacy
On Tuesday, Nov. 3, voters will go to the polls to cast ballots in the 2020 General Election. Every four years we are told, “This is the most important election of our lifetime.” And I believe that every four years that is true. But while the race for President of the United States is taking up most of the political air right now, there are important races and proposals up and down the ballot that will have a significant impact on the future of our states, counties, cities, families and businesses.
As REALTORS®, our success depends on the ability to promote the benefits of homeownership to buyers and sellers. But too often success as an industry depends on defending those same benefits against government intervention.
The Kansas City REALTOR® Party, reinforced by RPAC, supports candidates who believe in homeownership and private property rights. Every day elected officials make decisions that impact the clients, businesses and livelihoods of REALTORS®. That’s why KCRAR encourages all REALTORS® to make their voices heard at the ballot box on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
Help protect The American Dream. Get out and Vote Kansas City REALTOR® Party to support homeownership!
