Scott Reed is ousted from Chamber of Commerce

A replacement has not been named, but an internal memo obtained by The Washington Post says that the chamber anticipates no disruption in its election plans, which this year included endorsing 30 Democrats seeking House seats. This shift has led to a growing rift between the chamber and top Republicans.

In an email, Reed said he was planning to leave the organization at the end of the year anyway.

“The Chamber would not let me spend Senate money down the home stretch in North Carolina and Maine,” he wrote.

The chamber’s move to terminate Reed took place Tuesday afternoon after chamber CEO Thomas J. Donohue informed the executive committee of the board’s decision.

“I am disappointed and shocked to have to inform you that we have had to terminate Scott Reed’s consulting contract for cause, effective immediately,” Donohue wrote.

Chamber of commerce endorses Ann Arbor’s affordable housing tax proposal

ANN ARBOR, MI — The Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber has joined a growing list of groups endorsing Ann Arbor’s tax proposal to fund affordable housing.

In a statement released Monday, Sept. 28, the business group explained why it’s supporting Proposal C, a 20-year, 1-mill levy on the Nov. 3 ballot that could help create an estimated 1,500 new affording housing units around the city.

“Housing affordability is both an individual need and a major factor in the success of the local business community,” the chamber stated. “There is an urgent need for additional housing in Ann Arbor which working people can afford.”

The lack of affordable housing presents “an enormous economic challenge for families spending the majority of their paycheck on housing, and a huge impact on area prosperity because too many businesses have been unable to find the workforce they need to operate or grow,” the chamber stated.

The Thai Chamber of Commerce (TCC) has urged the government to extend the visa amnesty for 400,000 tourists here, while operators in Chiang Mai said more than 10,000 international tourists are helping to generate revenue in the province while borders remain closed.

TCC chairman Kalin Sarasin said the chamber has repeatedly demanded that the Immigration Bureau consider automatically extending the deadline for foreigners in Thailand for 90 days after the amnesty expires today, but the proposal was neglected.
