Rural Friends ACRE is a nonpartisan political action committee (PAC) that helps supporters of electric cooperatives who are seeking a seat on the Texas Legislature or U. S. Congress.
The organization was formed in 1966 to support congressional candidates who support co-op goals and operates under the guidelines and policies of a board of directors composed of electric cooperative leaders from around the state. The membership also consists of co-op members who help defend their local electric co-op and care enough to contribute to the progress and growth of their own cooperative and the communities it serves.
America’s Electric Cooperatives PAC is the federal political action committee (PAC) of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) and is backed by nearly 35,000 eligible employees, directors and consumer-members across the country. It is truly a grassroots movement powered by thousands of contributors giving an average of $65.00 per year.
