After Mike Flesher, president of the American Rental Association (ARA) and president of Taylor Rental Center in Vestal, N.Y., provided testimony to the House Small Business Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax and Capital Access about the effect of the estate tax on small businesses, the story was picked up and aired by FOX News.
“Mike Flesher did a great job representing ARA members before Congress and was able to extend that representation in front of the media,” says John McClelland, ARA's vice president for government affairs. “ARA got this opportunity because so many ARA members come to Washington, D.C., for the annual Legislative Caucus. While they are here they build important relationships with members of Congress that lead to these kinds of opportunities, which says a great deal about ARA’s influence in Washington, D.C.”
