GNYADA PAC Scores Over 97% Success Rate in Midterm Elections 1

NOV 2014 Volume 24, Issue 7

We are still evaluating all of the election results in New York, but we are happy to report that 97% of the candidates that GNYADA supported through the dealer PAC fund have won their races for the State Legislature. The results of the midterm election came as clear justification for GNYADA’s political action strategy. The GNYADA PAC fund comes from dealer contributions, and 100% of the con- tributions go to support State representa- tives who support new car dealer issues in the Legislature. GNYADA members con- tributed a record $365,000 to primaries and general races this year. Among the candidates that GNYADA supported were Gov. Cuomo and Lt. Gov.- elect Kathy Hochul, both of whom faced primary and general election challenges. GNYADA also supported NYS Comptroller Tom DiNapoli as well as state legislators from both the Senate and Assembly. Republicans Pick Up Seats in the Senate GNYADA was particularly successful in supporting a number of key Republican

Senators. These senators will enter a new term in January with Republicans in sole control of the State Senate, something that their conference lost following the 2012 elections. It is GNYADA’s goal to continue to achieve these kinds of strong successes to justify the political activity it undertakes on your behalf. We want to take the opportunity to thank all the dealers who support GNYADA’s political efforts in Washington, Albany, and on the local level to make sure fran- chise dealers’ voices are heard. Your finan- cial contributions along with the calls and emails that you send on key legislative issues are what allow us to be effective on your behalf. It’s Never Too Late to Contribute You may contribute to the GNYADA PAC at any time or send contributions of $250, $500, $1,000, or more with your member- ship dues. Make a donation to help us advo- cate on your behalf by calling Jennifer at the Association at 718.746.5900 ext. 235.
