A friend who owns a few stores on the east coast just emailed in a request for help, and since the government loaning our industry money affects everyone, we thought it made sense to share.  If you support the government helping our industry, this is particualrly for you.


There is a simple form to fill out, on Congress.org, that will publish and send your message to the Politicians in DC who are making the decisions about providing loans to our industry. Dealers around the country who support government help are soliciting as many voices as possible to send a quick 2 sentance note of encouragement to the White House.  If you support this cause, please act now.  DrivingSales members are on both sides of the argument, but one thing is certain, the governments actions (or inactions) will affect us all.

I encourage you to make your voice heard. Follow this link, complete the form (it takes about 30 seconds) and get your message to the decision makers.

Here is a sample message that one dealer wrote:


"My father has been an automobile dealer since 1976 and my grandfather for 30+ years before then. More than 280 employees depend upon our family for a paycheck every Friday. I am merely one of 23,000 automotive dealers in the United States that will be adversely affected if anyone of the big 3 declares for bankruptcy. Each state depends upon us to collect sales tax revenue on the sale of new and used vehicles, the maintenance repairs of consumers needs and the collision repairs for their accidents.

The House and the Senate won't help Detroit survive this economic crises, but the President can. If he does not act, we all fail, because the rippling effect throughout our economy will be devastating.
Thanks for your support.”

Please take 30 seconds and let your voice be heard, this affects you:
