Contact the President-elect on Transportation Secretary Appointment

This is a time of year when motorcyclists' rights move to the back burner for many riders. This is understandable with the weather in many parts of the country not being conducive to motorcycle riding. Throw in the fact that we are coming off of a long election cycle and with the holiday season upon us, and one's attention can shift elsewhere.

Despite the reasons stated above, this should not be a period of hibernation for us. Currently, President-elect Obama is in the process of naming his cabinet members and White House staff. Most of those appointments have nothing to do with motorcycling. Several cabinet level positions do, however. Most notable would be Secretary of Transportation. It is not too late to let President-elect Obama know our feelings about what type of person we would like to see named to that position.

It may not be a bad idea to also thank President-elect Obama for his vote in the Senate against the "Lautenberg Amendment." That amendment, offered by the New Jersey Senator during the last re-authorization of the interstate highway funding act, was an attempt to pressure states into passing mandatory helmet laws. Don't be surprised if we are fighting such legislation again next year. It is not too early to start raising that issue.

What better place to kick-off our lobbying efforts for 2009 than by contacting the President-elect of the United States of America? An easy way to get a message to the President – elect is through his transition team's web-site. Please don't delay, as the process is well under way.
