FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce, for the second year in a row, is launching its revised program for the Honorary Mayor campaign.

Each local, non-profit organization in the chamber is asked to nominate a candidate from their membership. The benefits to the organization are abundant. By participating, the organization supports the candidate and provides the assistance they need. The organization receives exposure throughout the campaign and highlighted exposure for winning! Additionally, 20 percent of a candidate’s raised funds go to their organization, and 80 percent to the chamber.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, Aug. 15 at 3 p.m. Once a nomination is submitted to the chamber office, each candidate can immediately begin to raise as much money as they can through fundraising, donation requests, and any other creative means possible. The candidate who raises the most money wins the title of Honorary Mayor of Fallbrook. That winner will be linked with their supporting organization throughout the year.

The Honorary Mayor campaign is a fundraiser for the chamber and the money raised goes back into the community for other programs and overall support. The money that is raised will also benefit each organization that is represented with a candidate in the campaign.

Candidates will be introduced at the June, July, and August SunDowners and all monies raised must be collected and submitted to Levering & Hvasta CPAs no later than Friday, Sept. 12 at 4 p.m. The winner and their organization will be announced at the State of the Chamber Dinner on Sept. 17 at Zion Lutheran School.

2012-2013 Honorary Mayor Leo Romero said, "I was honored and will always remember the privilege of serving this awesome, beautiful community of Fallbrook. I was able to meet many people and assist in various ways and it was truly a memorable time!"

For more information or a nomination form, call the chamber office at (760) 728-5845.
