John O’Donnell Attends Fundraiser for Md. House Speaker Jones

WANADA President and CEO John O’Donnell joined Michael Johansen, the association’s government affairs representative in Annapolis, at a fundraiser for Maryland House of Delegates Speaker Adrienne Jones (D-Randallstown).

O’Donnell and Johansen had a nice conversation with Speaker Jones, which focused on the ways that the House of Delegates can continue to be a supportive partner of dealers, particularly on matters including electric-vehicle grants. The Maryland General Assembly has passed several laws that benefit dealers in the past couple of years, including an increase in the maximum dealer processing charge, and a replenishment of the EV tax credit that had previously been promised to electric-vehicle buyers prior to July 1, 2020.

As always, WANADA works tirelessly to advocate on behalf of our member dealers, and the association is proud to support legislators and other elected officials who have been supportive of the franchised dealer industry.
