The Kentucky Automobile Dealers Election Trust (KADET) is the PAC for Kentucky dealers. 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.
Legislators and regulators in Kentucky can have a huge impact on dealer operations. That is why we need your help with continuous fundraising efforts to ensure we have strong advocacy efforts. Lack of support could be costly especially when issues like franchise law, dealer licensing, and taxes come before legislation.
All contributions received from dealers goes directly to help with advocacy efforts.
The stakes are too high to not plan for the future. With KADET, you put money into something that protects your dealership, your family, your livelihood.
Your contributions drive our industry forward!
KADA is grateful for all of the members that have given to KADET!
Dealers who contribute $1,000 or more per year become members of the KADET Presidents Club and receive special recognition for their support of the industry.
