FADA is humbled and thankful for the attendance of our FADA Board members and dealer guests at this year’s Mike Maher Dealer Day on the Hill!
Because while they did no magic tricks, their presence was persuasive and impacted every legislator that day and will continue to impact them for the balance of the Session!
These 40 of your peers left a huge impact because FADA briefed every dealer there and they knew the subject and built the rapport for the FADA lobby team to continue. In addition they actually participated in the first Senate hearing on our Dealer Data bill, SB 960.
Having dealers calling on specific legislators who will determine the fate of our dealer bills is magical in the sense that these men and women made a statement by their presence.
When state legislators see the passion and hear the reasons for a bill from their local dealer, this creates a momentum that is unstoppable. Yes, we have a great staff and lobbying team covering all of our bills, but the presence of dealers seals the deal!
