Advocacy is of utmost importance to the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce. We represent 730+ members and 7000+ jobs in our community and county. Chambers of Commerce have authority under state and federal law to represent our members in public policy debates. We may lobby and take positions on actual or proposed legislation. Chambers may legally endorse candidates for public office and/or ballot propositions. The Bastrop Chamber of Commerce has historically NOT endorsed political candidates and will not be using this website to do so.
The purpose of this website is Promote the Vote in Bastrop County! We get the government we deserve when we don’t exercise our right to vote. Our goal is to be a resource for fair, impartial and informative information about the candidates seeking elected office.
It is an exciting time to be a part of the greater Bastrop area! We continue to see both new challenges and new opportunities as economic growth in Bastrop County propels us forward into new waters. These times are dynamic and call for us to be more diligent in working together as we advocate for the needs of our community and county as a whole.
We look forward to working together for the betterment of the greater Bastrop area!
