MRF's Rick Gray Runs for AMA Board Re-election

Rick Gray of Lancaster, PA, is currently running for re-election to the AMA Board of Trustees representing the Northeast Region. He is a long-time motorcycle rights advocate as a founding member of ABATE of PA, and an MRF Board member for several years. Rick is presently serving as Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Ballots are in the January issue of the American Motorcyclist. All AMA members are eligible to vote in their respective Region. Voting must be done on the official ballot in the magazine.

Throughout Rick's tenure on the Board, the AMA has sharpened it's focus on Motorcyclist's Rights and Government Relations. This increased focus was recently exhibited in the selection of Rob Rasor as the new AMA President. Rob has served for many years as the head of the Government Relations Department of the AMA.

It is clear from recent events that the biggest threat to motorcycling and it's future is from government regulation, and bad legislation, at the state, federal, and international levels. It is in the best interest of all motorcyclists to have people like Rick Gray serving in positions of trust and influence. The motorcycle organizations that we depend on to preserve our future and freedom will be more important than ever in the globalization of the industry.

Ballot deadline is January 15, 2001
