The Kentucky Automobile Dealers Election Trust (KADET) is the KADA PAC. Established in 1981, its purpose is to support legislative candidates at the state level who understand the needs of new and used car dealers. KADET contributes to those state legislators who listen to the concerns of dealers and carefully consider the costs of proposed laws and regulations and demonstrate fairness on issues impacting Kentucky’s automotive retail industry.
KADA is grateful to all of the members that have given to KADET, allowing us to continue our legislative efforts for you. Dealers who contribute $1,000 or more per year become members of the KADET President’s Club and receive special recognition for their support of the industry.
Thank you to our 2017 President’s Club Members
