MRF to meet with RNC Leadership


The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) would like to announce that the leadership of the Republican National Committee (RNC) has agreed to meet with them. The meeting will take place on Monday, August 11, 2008 at the headquarters of the RNC in Washington DC. Representing the MRF will be Jeff Hennie, Vice President of Government Relations; Dave Dwyer, Sustaining State Motorcyclists Rights Organization Representative; and Michael Kerr, Vice President of the MRF.


The MRF sought to meet with the leadership of the RNC after a succession of appointees of President Bush took positions that the MRF and many in the motorcycling community felt were against their best interests. Those appointees happened to be prominent Republicans in their own right.


The MRF is seeking a clarification on the Republican Party's position on the doctrine of Federalism. The MRF will be asking whether this administration and/or future Republican presidential administrations will adhere to the longstanding GOP policy of the federal government not interfering with state issues.


The MRF has also been in touch with the Democratic National Committee and would hope to meet with them as well. A meeting with the campaign staff of the presumptive Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party is also being sought by the MRF.
