|The time is NOW to get involved in your local community and participate in the governmental decision-making processes. No longer can we be wary of participating in the political and local community processes. The OHV Community must have a credible and recognized voice in local affairs which can only be achieved by personal involvement with our elected officials.
In order to increase the visibility and voice of the OHV Community, we must all increase our personal participation in our local and regional governmental decision making processes.

We, the OHV Community must do the same – get to the table TODAY and be a voice in our local public processes.
