Political Action Committee
The Oakland County Deputy Sheriff’s Association Political Action Committee, or OCDSA-PAC, is an important component of the legislative representation OCDSA provides its members. A PAC fund is a special, separate fund created from the personal contributions of an organization’s members and outside contributors. (Michigan Campaign Finance Act) Monies from this special fund are used to help pay the campaign expenses for candidates that are running for elected office. OCDSA’s PAC was created to provide our members, who are interested in the future of law enforcement and corrections, with an avenue to contribute to the support of worthy candidates for office. Participation is voluntary and contributions are not tax-deductible. Federal law requires that the OCDSA- PAC receive permission from its members before we are able to solicit contributions, and deduct a set amount per paycheck. Unfortunately, Oakland County Personnel will not deduct separate funds for our PAC, they will only deduct extra union dues and transfer one whole dollar amount to the General Fund. If you would like to contribute to OCDSA- PAC, or if you have fundraising ideas or are a motivated ‘people person’, and are interested in becoming involved with OCDSA’s PAC, please contact a Department of Governmental Relations (or Union) member.
