Candidate Endorsements

Decisions are made frequently by government impacting the real estate industry and the business of our members. MOR believes it’s important to have elected officials who support our mission, vision, and positions, such as homeownership, private property rights, and strong communities. With this in mind, MOR applies a systematic process including questionnaires and in-person interviews to identify candidates who best align with our values and goals.
