Many people might not have heard of the American Conservative Union (ACU) but they have heard of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). The Conservative Political Action Conference is run by the American Conservative Union which was founded in 1964 and “is the nation’s oldest conservative grassroots organization and seeks to preserve and protect the values of life, liberty, and property for every American”.
CPAC is an annual conference attended by conservatives from across the entire United States. The first CPAC was held in 1974.
In recognition of his consistent track record in promoting conservative principles, values and the legislation he got passed while serving as a member of the Michigan State House. Rep. Hall was awarded the coveted Conservative Excellence Award from the American Conservative Union at CPAC’s Florida 2022 conference. Out of a total of 148 elected Michigan Representatives and Senators, Rep. Hall was one of only 8 legislators to receive CPAC’s highest award. His conservative voting record earned him a 90% rating.
The CPAC Foundation “conducts an annual, in-depth analysis to rate all 8,000 lawmakers in America, revealing their positions on a wide variety of issues directly affecting our communities and families.”
When Rep. Matt Hall was awarded the Conservative Excellence Award he said:
“I am honored that the American Conservative Union awarded me the Conservative Excellence Award for my voting record. The Conservative Excellence Award is the American Conservative Union’s highest award. They announced my award at CPAC Florida 2022.
I promised people across Kalamazoo and Calhoun counties that I would defend conservative values in Lansing and I am working every day to deliver on that promise. I will continue fighting for these ideals and I remain committed to being one of the foremost conservative voices in the Legislature.
Now my fight will continue in the new 42nd District which includes the Kalamazoo County townships of Alamo, Brady, Comstock, Cooper, Kalamazoo (part), Oshtemo (part), Pavilion, Prairie Ronde, Richland, Ross, Schoolcraft and cities of Galesburg and Parchment. It also includes the Allegan County townships of Gun Plain, Otsego (part) and cities of Otsego and Plainwell.”
