ATRA (the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association) is the only non-profit trade association with the specific mission of training professionals in our industry. Gary Jennings and Rick Bennington just returned from their convention and trade show held at The Bally's Hotel in Las Vegas. They attended four days of seminars and scoured the trade show floor for the latest tools, equipment and parts to help insure Jim Jennings Transmissions stays on the "leading edge" of technology. In order to be the best, we constantly have to be the best trained, the best equipped and use the best parts. The show was fantastic and next year will be in Washington, DC.

JB Jennings, Jim's grandson, was successful in his bid for the republican nomination to run for the Maryland senate seat in the 7th legislative district. JB gave up his seat as a state delegate he had held for the last eight years to run for the seat being vacated by senator Andy Harris.

JB would like to thank each and every friend and supporter who were so generous contributing their time to help with his campaign and thank everyone who cast their vote for him. He also would like send out a "big thank you" to everyone who made a financial contribution that actually made his campaign possible. He promises to work hard to help make Maryland a better state in which to live, work and play. JB was the only legislator who did not miss a single floor vote during the last eight years.

Governor Robert Ehrlich spent the morning talking to area business people on subjects pertaining to how to make Maryland more business friendly. He also talked about the possibility of the current administration adding sales tax to labor which would increase the cost of auto repairs since it is now only applied to parts.
Before the Governor spoke, he took a tour of our repair center and chatted with each member of our staff. He was met with a very warm reception from our staff as well as many other repair shop owners who came to hear his views on "how to make Maryland more business friendly"
