The Urbana Political Action Committee is a group of local volunteers who formed a in 2008 outside of the traditional political parties. It is a committee that supports and recruits local independent and party affiliated political candidates. As the focus is this group is specifically on the candidates, all funds raised go directly to local candidates, and all activists are unpaid.
The Urbana Political Action Committee is influential in canvassing and is always looking for new volunteers. Local volunteers can get involved by contacting David Bramfield at Urb_forest@hotmail.com, as well as by phone at 217-637-0865.
