Indiana independent auto dealer and former President of the Indiana Independent Automobile Dealers Association Andy Zay wants to be a strong voice for the industry in Washington, D.C.
Zay, a sitting Republican state senator, is running for the U.S. House of Representatives seat in Indiana’s Third Congressional District. The Republican Primary for the race is May 7. Zay is one of 10 candidates in the crowded field.
Zay attended the NIADA Policy Conference in Washington, D.C., and the BHPH Dealer Forum in Indianapolis, Ind., speaking on the benefits of having a fellow independent auto dealer in Congress.
“I’m running for Congress because I believe we need leadership in Washington. We are in desperate need of a representative who will work to cut stifling red tape, bring the right-to-repair policy to the front of the line, and get the CFPB off the back of the auto industry,” Zay said.
“In Washington, I’ll be a voice and a vote for retail auto dealers across our country and fight back against harmful policies. In fact, I will be the only legislator in Congress representing independent car dealers.
Zay has been reaching out to the industry for support to help raise campaign funds. Information on how to contribute is available at andyzay.com.
