Political Endorsements

WRA works to shape the legislature by letting candidates know which issues are important to the restaurant industry and our members.

WRA endorses candidates based upon their stance on key business issues that impact the restaurant industry that are approved by WRA’s board of directors.

Endorsements are only made if a questionnaire or interview is completed and the candidate is favorable to most of the key issues that were identified.

The endorsement process is 100% based upon the candidate’s stance on those key issues.
