PAC Corner

March 2014 Volume L Number 2

On March 2, 2014, the AAPD PAC Steering Committee met in Washington, D.C., to consider candidate support for the 2014 fall Congressional mid-term elections. If you know of current members of Congress (House or Senate) with whom you have a good relationship and who might merit AAPD PAC support, please contact please contact PAC Secretary C. Scott Litch at (312) 337-2169, ext. 29, or Also feel free to discuss directly with me or your PAC district representative at any time, as the AAPD PAC is nimble and makes decisions throughout election cycles based on requests, analysis, and political circumstances. The AAPD PAC Steering Committee membership grid is available at


This is your chance to assist the AAPD PAC in making important decisions about how to best allocate its funds. Our main criteria for support of a candidate is his or her proven record of support for children's oral health and interest in the issue and potential for becoming a champion.


We will also be asking a number of advocates to assist throughout the spring, summer and fall in making PAC check deliveries. Each election cycle we have increased the number of fund-raisers hosted by pediatric dentists. This allows us to combine the AAPD PAC's support with individual campaign contributions for a fund-raising event that really gains the attention of campaigns. These events increase the visibility of the AAPD PAC and provide an opportunity for our members to thank key members of Congress for their support of children's oral health care.


Thanks again for your support and I look forward to your input.
