Asheville Chamber of Commerce Severs its Association With the US Chamber

I believe in taking a stand for your principles. The Asheville Citizen-Times reported today that the Asheville Chamber of Commerce will not be renewing it’s association with the US Chamber of Commerce. This is a gusty move that should be applauded. The US Chamber has become more and more partisan over the past several years and spends millions of dollars in it’s attempt to influence elections. It has come out as a climate change skeptic, and actively worked against health care reform.

The US Chamber of commerce does not represent the needs and views of the Asheville Chamber or it’s members.  Again, I applaud Asheville for taking a stand.

Here’s the article from the Asheville Citizen-Times.
