Political Action Committee

Support Pro-Business. Support Pro-Dealer. Support the Virginia Auto & Truck Dealers PAC.

It’s no secret laws passed in Richmond impact our stores and our livelihoods in significant ways. That’s why it’s so important we support and elect candidates for public office that are pro-business and pro-dealer, no matter their party affiliation. Each year, the PAC allows VADA and its members to speak with a unified voice in support of political candidates who (1) understand the industry and (2) are willing to listen.

Here's why giving in 2021 is vitally important.

Pandemic recovery aside, 2021 will see elections for Virginia's Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and all 100 seats in the House of Delegates. VADA has a great opportunity to reinforce our message and demonstrate our value with Virginia’s new and current leaders.

The stakes are too high to sit back and hope for a positive future. With the PAC, you put money into something that protects your livelihood — and has for generations.
