For the first time ever, we can report record-breaking first-time contributors to the AED Political Action Committee (AED PAC). The AED PAC has been growing stronger every year and has blossomed into a strong voice in D.C. New AED Chairman Michael Brennan is making government affairs a priority, so we invite you to join us. Did you know that AED also has a Public Policy Council? For a nominal contribution to the PAC, you can participate in monthly conference calls where you can ask questions of congressional leadership in the House and Senate. One thing is certain: your AED PAC contributions only go to representatives who support AED and our industry, regardless of party affiliation.
AED’s Vice President of Government Affairs, Daniel Fisher, is on the Hill each and every day cementing old relationships and building new relationships with the freshmen members of Congress elected in 2018. For dealers, this means that many of those new members of the House and Senate might just want a tour of your dealership. A tour will show them firsthand what your dealership is providing to the local economy and how your company provides its employees with good-paying jobs that allow them to raise a family and further contribute to the community. The economy is doing well, but we need to remind our representatives in D.C. that our nation’s infrastructure is crumbling and we cannot kick the can down the road any longer. The right choices in D.C. can make our dealerships prosper and allow us to contribute to the economic revitalization taking place across America.
So, don’t wait – pick up that phone or computer mouse and contact your AED regional manager and tell them you want to participate in the Washington Fly-In
or host a member of Congress at your dealership. We hope to hear from you soon.
