St. Tammany CHAMBERPAC is a nonpartisan political action committee working to endorse and elect political candidates who support business, the free enterprise system, freedom from unnecessary government regulation, and quality of life in our region.
As a five-star accredited chamber, we have proven our effectiveness as a business support organization. The formation of a PAC was strongly recommended to maintain this highest accreditation ranking.
St. Tammany CHAMBERPAC will enable us to grow our grass roots effort to increase voter turnout, encourage strong business minded candidates to run for office, and importantly, enable us to add muscle by endorsing not only issues, amendments, tax renewals, etc., but finally, the option to endorse business minded political candidates.

According to CHAMBERPAC chairman Bret Kolman, “we focus on candidates’ commitments to work with the business community, their willingness to listen to concerns expressed by employers in their city, and their commitment to transparency in government. We feel that Patrick is committed to improving his city and is dedicated to its responsible growth.”
McMath believes that Covington is on the right path, “but our infrastructure, drainage and traffic issues must be resolved as swiftly as possible, and without raising taxes; our economy must continue to grow but in keeping with the small-town charm of our city; as the newest and youngest member of the City Council, I will bring fresh eyes and a different perspective to Covington.”
Election Day is Saturday, March 25 and early voting is March 11-18. If elected, McMath will fill the remaining term of long-time public servant Lee Alexius.
