PETITION TO KEEP FROM SHUTTING DOWN PROFITABLE DEALERSHIPS IN MINNESOTA This Petition is for the purpose of helping to reverse decisions made by the Obama Administration to close down auto dealerships, who are profitable. According to the details listed in the documentation for thinning the dealerships around the Country, dealerships that showed a tendency to lose money were to be closed. This would mean that only the most profitable dealerships would be left to sell cars for GM and Chrysler/Jeep. There has been a different set of standards applied, however! At Present time 2 dealerships in the 6TH Congressional District are being told to close their doors, when several others with less desirable profit and loss statements are being kept open. The 2 dealerships in question are Main Motors in Anoka (GM dealership for the last 90 years), and Fury Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep in Lake Elmo. It is the purpose of this petition to make aware to the Obama Administration that in a time of economic peril in this Country, the closing of profitable dealerships anywhere in the Country is absurd and should not be allowed to go ahead that way. By signing this petition, you are saying that you want profitable dealerships in your district and around the Country to remain open, thus keeping thousands of people employed and paying their taxes in a time of high unemployment and the start of inflation. Please help us to achieve no less than 10,000 signatures, so that our Representative, Michele Bachmann, can deliver it to the White House and make our desires and needs heard!
