The Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association and member co-ops in Tennessee support state and federal level candidates through our two political action committees. TECA’s state level PAC is the Tennessee Action Committee for Rural Electrification (Tennessee ACRE). America’s Electric Cooperatives PAC is the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s political action committee.
Both PACs support candidates for political office – those in office now and running for office – who will speak for and protect the interests of electric cooperatives and their consumer-owners. The PACs are bipartisan, supporting candidates based solely on their support for electric cooperatives and issues important to rural and suburban Tennessee. For more information on the PAC program or eligibility to participate, please contact Ryan King, vice president of government affairs, at 615.515.5533.
Contributions are not tax deductible, are voluntary and will be used for political purposes. You have a right to refuse to contribute without reprisal. AECPAC raises personal, voluntary contributions from NRECA’s eligible membership. Federal law prohibits soliciting contributions from individuals other than NRECA and member-systems’ eligible employees, boards of directors, consumer-owners and the families of such individuals. Contributions from ineligible individuals will be returned.
