Serving as lead lobbyist for the Committee to Restore Dealer Rights, a nationwide coalition of terminated General Motors and Chrysler dealers that secured hundreds of cosponsors for legislation which would help restore their dealerships, and ultimately obtained unprecedented bipartisan legislation in December, 2009 establishing an arbitration process by which they could seek reinstatement. His work included communicating on an almost daily basis with hundreds of auto dealers, helping prepare them for a major fly-in and Capitol press conference attended by the House Majority Leader, and working on the media campaign, including guidance regarding the coalition’s website content.
