Amador County Rally/ BLM Bidder/ "American Outrage"


Amador County Rally What happens when car dealersips close in a tiny county? This happened recently in Amador County. Three car dealers were closed late last year and it's hurting a lot of people, but residents are taking matters into their own hands, protesting the closure of the dealerships. We'll talk with two residents who have helped organize a rally in support of shopping locally.

Amador Community Rally in support of shopping locally is at noon Saturday, Jan. 10th at Prospect Motors, 11361 Prospect Dr., Jackson.
