Chrysler Dealers Convene with Federal Legislators

November 19, 2008

WASHINGTON — As the U.S. Congress considers support for the domestic automobile industry, a select group of Chrysler’s U.S. dealer network will visit Capitol Hill this week to discuss their concerns regarding the impact of the global financial and liquidity crisis on consumer confidence. The dealers will voice their support for temporary financial assistance for the domestic auto industry.

Thirty-three dealers representing 25 states will make Capitol Hill visits to key Republican and DemocratIC members of Congress, as well as to the Bush Administration. The group consists of Chrysler’s 18-member National Dealer Council, as well as 15 additional dealers who have requested to participate.

Three Chrysler dealer principles held a media roundtable on Monday to discuss the dealers’ efforts to have their voices heard in Washington.

As of September 2008, there are 3,372 Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealerships in the United States, directly employing more than 140,000 people.
