BizPac
BizPac, the political action committee of the Committee of 100, contributes funds to candidates for Huntsville Mayor, City Council and Board of Education; Madison Mayor and City Council; the Madison County Commission and Madison County Superintendent.

BizPac board members interview every candidate for these offices in election years. BizPac makes recommendations for endorsements and contributions to the membership for its approval.

We give money to candidates who are qualified and progressive team players, and consider strongly those with a business background. We contribute most in those elections where we think we can make a significant difference.
