| Congressional summer recess is upon us!
From today thru September 5, the U.S. Senate and House have adjourned and completed their commitments to the political conventions. They now return to their home states and districts — making now the perfect time to schedule a meeting with your elected official!
Establishing and maintaining relationships with your elected officials and their staff in your home state is an important and effective way to further our mission. Right now, we have a legislative measure pending and we need to shore up additional co-sponsors. As you know, in July, House Resolution 831 was introduced before Congress by Reps. Ribble (Wisc.) and Walberg (Mich.). Now is the time to ask your elected officials to consider adding their name as a co-sponsor!
I have drafted talking points and attached them to this message for your use and reference. It contains all the pertinent information you will need when meeting with your elected official or their staff.
If you need ANY assistance getting in touch with your elected official, please reply directly to me and I can provide phone numbers, email addresses and any other information you might need to conduct your outreach.
Thank you for your support and keep me informed as to your progress!

(8-1-16) August already? WOW! What a ride this season. June Jam was the best it has ever been with great entertainment and some most excellent food vendors and a nice mix of general vendors and perfect weather to make for a very comfortable weekend of camping and carousing with some very good people. The June Jam Committee outdid it’s self this year, pulling out all the stops and really pushing the advertising angle like never before. I met up with some friends I have not seen in years and met some new ones. .................( Read more....)

(8-1-16) And the more I think about it, the more grateful I am for all the members of ABATE of Ohio Inc. You are the strength of the organization. It’s very hard to be a grass roots motorcycle rights and safety organization with out all of you.
You are the ones that show up and volunteer at events to raise awareness or raise money. Both seem to be in too short of supply.
You are the one who attend the fundraisers so we can continue to exist and do the great things we do.
You are the ones that write letters, make phone calls, and send emails when needed to help fix the issues we come across that are unfair and/ or just need our attention.....................( Read more....)

(7-22-16) Hello all.
I am Kolman Fuzy, a 22 year member of Abate of Ohio, Inc. and I am writing this to introduce myself as the new Government Relations Director for the Organization. I have taken the necessary steps to register as a lobbyist, and I am reaching out to the various sponsors of our legislation and other pieces of legislation that pertain to motorcyclists. Introducing myself on a face to face basis, if possible is difficult, with the political conventions going on and up-coming recesses looming, but I feel that this is a better way to establishing myself as the face of the Organization on the legislative front. In the meantime, if anyone has any issues, questions,suggestions or concerns, please contact me at: email@example.com or 614-332-0198.

(8-1-16) The MRF (Motorcycle Riders Foundation) Has introduced a new slogan “Ride Aware, Drive Aware and Live Aware”. We need to take this and work on it because it does touch all the bases. We all know that we need to Ride Aware; we work on this from day one. Tell your family and friends to Drive Aware and keep putting those yard signs out “Look Twice Save a Life” and a magnate “Look out for Motorcycles” on the back of every car. And the last is Live Aware this to me means we to get every fellow biker to be a member of ABATE, the MRF or AMA (American Motorcycle Association). And support our freedom to ride and live our life................. ( Read more )
