Former U.S. Senator Wayne Allard of Colorado is now working for the AMA. Allard start his new position as the VIce President of Government Relations for the American Motorcyclist Association on October 3rd.
The AMA is constantly fighting to protect motorcyclists rights, and now they'll have an "inside man" with Allard.
"We are extremely pleased to welcome Senator Allard to the AMA," said Rob Dingman, AMA president and CEO. "The addition of Senator Allard raises the profile of the AMA significantly in the corridors of Congress and federal agencies, and his presence bodes well for motorcyclists nationwide as he serves our mission to promote the motorcycle lifestyle and protect the future of motorcycling.
"We look forward to taking our advocacy to the next level with Senator Allard leading our government relations efforts in Washington, D.C."
Allard was a two-time senator in Colorado between 1991 and 2009.
"I am anxious to contribute to the good work of the AMA, and I look forward to working with the staff and members of the Association," Allard said. "Colorado's motorcyclists helped me win elections, and they kept me informed about their issues. The role of government in our everyday lives is of great concern to motorcyclists, and I look forward to helping educate our elected officials, agencies and the public about the vital role that motorcycling plays in America's economy and way of life."
