Heinrich Will Meet With Auto Dealers Tuesday

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – In light of Chrysler’s announcement to shut down 789 dealerships nationwide as part of its reorganization in bankruptcy court, and the announcement by General Motors to shut down thousands of its dealers nationwide, U.S. Representative Martin Heinrich (NM-01) will host a local auto dealers roundtable this afternoon in Albuquerque.

770KKOB will be there and report what was discussed on this blog later in the evening.

Heinrich's press office says the congressman intends to gather concerns and discuss the impact of the shutdowns on local auto dealers in order to discuss those concerns with President Barack Obama’s Automotive Task Force.

Four car dealerships in New Mexico are on the list of dealers Chrysler has targeted to no longer sell their cars. Quality Jeep Chrysler Inc. in the First Congressional District is on the list of closures.
