The goal of the California Prosperity Project is to increase employee involvement in the political process. This includes outreach to increase voter registration for primary and general elections.  For the recent Nov. 7 election, the Prosperity Project program reached 750,000 employees and recorded 71,162 voter registration downloads from the website.  

CMTA is excited that only four months of active operation resulted in these impressive results. CP2 has the long-term potential to make a significant impact on statewide elections and issues.

CMTA will continue the program's aggressive outreach to small and medium sized manufacturers to engage their employees and communicate other important issues, such as preserving workers compensation reforms and revitalizing California career tech education.

The Prosperity Project's parent organization, BIPAC, just concluded another survey on the importance of voting information sent to employees from employers.  Among the results (pdf), 61 percent of the 2,000 employees surveyed said that information from their employer regarding "which way to vote" would be at least "somewhat helpful".  CMTA plans to capitalize on that number to help insure employees are well informed for future elections.  Without hearing from employers, who will they hear from?

If you would like to enroll in the Prosperity Project program to inform your employees on election, voting and policy information in the future, contact Dave Althausen at 498-3343.
