WANADA President and CEO John O’Donnell had a busy couple of days last week. First, last Tuesday night, he was at Game 4 of the National League Championship Series at Nationals Park with his wife Kristin, and happened to run into D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. John thanked Mayor Bowser for the city’s long-standing support of the Washington Auto Show, and they all had a very good time together watching the Nationals clinch their first-ever trip to the World Series.
Later in the week, O’Donnell joined two more of the region’s most powerful politicians at a fundraiser in Northern Virginia. O’Donnell was representing WANADA at a gathering for Virginia Senate Minority Leader Richard Saslaw (D-Fairfax), who is poised to lead the General Assembly’s upper chamber following the state elections on Nov. 5. Joining them was U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of St. Mary’s County. As Southern Maryland’s voice in Congress for nearly four decades, Leader Hoyer has been a longtime supporter of WANADA member dealers and The Washington Auto Show.Download Bulletin PDF
