"All trail-access decisions are political decisions"

The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public lands through the electoral and legislative processes.
The TPAC tactical goal is to target key races using state-of-the art real-time analysis where there is a tough election and the pro-access candidate needs some extra support to help to defeat their opponent.
TPAC is needed to counter the anti-access special interests in Washington DC who have long ago figured that contributing to closure-oriented politicians is how they will accomplish their goal of restricting OHV access on federal lands.
TPAC is ready to stand in that political breach to stop the flow of anti-access politicians into the Capital. TPAC will work hard to reverse that trend so that pro-access legislators will exist as the majority in Congress and the White House.

Happy Thanksgiving from TPAC - Let's Give Thanks for Trails!

As OHV voters prepare to enjoy the Thanksgiving Day holiday with family and friends, TPAC wants to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of you who are helping us elect pro-trail candidates to the U.S. Congress in the 2014 midterms.

TPAC also wants to commend the owner of Roseville Kawasaki/Yamaha, Sean Coplen, for his precedent setting outreach to his customers so they can be informed on the three steps of  how to protect OHV recreation on public lands. 

In Coplen’s letter of support for national and local trail advocacy groups, he also urges his customers to become engaged in the electoral process by supporting TPAC.  TPAC believes this is the 1st motorcycle dealer to articulate (in a letter to his customers) such strong public support for political activism at the national level as a key and effective factor in the OHV advocacy equation.

According to a recent federal OHV recreation survey, about 19% of Americans participate in OHV recreation on an annual basis.  There is huge potential for that electorate to have a significant impact on federal elections IF they become engaged.

The 2014 midterm election season is rapidly approaching and TPAC is getting ready to hit the political trail running with support for pro-access candidates in key battleground states. 

If you want to support that effort, please make your “I’M THANKFUL FOR TRAILS” donation of $25, $50, $100, $200, $500, or $1,000 dollars at the link below:

Thanks again for your support!

Happy Thanksgiving,

Don Amador, Founder
The Trail PAC
