SEMPAC is a voluntary, non-partisan political action committee (PAC).SEMPAC's mission is to support candidates and issues which promote a dynamic energy industry, good government and the vitality of communities.

Why do we need SEMPAC?
Two groups of people - 538 men and women in Washington, D.C. and 148 in Lansing - decide how SEMCO ENERGY operates and how many jobs it will ultimately provide. Every one of these men and women entered public office with their own experiences, which may or may not include knowledge of the utility industry and its complex set of laws and regulations.
How does SEMPAC make a difference?
SEMCO ENERGY employees must have the opportunity to educate lawmakers about the realities of the company's business. By joining SEMPAC, you are telling our elected officials that SEMCO ENERGY wants to be part of the legislative process. Your contributions don't - and won't - buy votes. They will, however, be used to support candidates for office who are willing to listen to our concerns on key legislative matters.
Do I have to join?
No. Membership in SEMPAC is entirely voluntary. You may decide not to contribute without reprisal. SEMCO ENERGY will not favor or disadvantage anyone by reason of the amount contributed or the decision whether or not to contribute.
Who decides which candidates to support?
The SEMPAC Executive Committee establishes the disbursement strategy and guidelines based on recommendations from the SEMPAC Steering Committee and advice from the Director of Government Affairs. Funds are disbursed on a bipartisan basis based on a candidate's committee assignments, political philosophy, voting record, understanding of the utility industry and whether or not SEMCO ENERGY is a constituent.
How do I join?
