As you may know, I was first elected to the Board of the NRMA in 1990, and re-elected at every election thereafter, including the 2005 Board election where I received the highest number of votes of all candidates.
For almost 2 decades, I have championed the mutual cause, stood up to wrongdoing and opposed corporate excesses.
We will continue to fight for MAG's policies to:
Ban members' funds being donated to any political parties
Reduce your annual membership fee by rebating profits
Restore free membership for 50 year members & free NRMA Plus to 25 year members
Oppose compulsory “S” Plates for senior drivers
Investigate establishing NRMA petrol stations to save fuel costs for members and end the weekly price cycle
Ban directors overseas trips, excessive executive salaries, & multiple directors' fees for subsidiary companies
Investigate establishing a new mutual insurer to rebate profits to policyholders & subsidise your road service
Reverse the 60% increase in directors fees
Restore NRMA's own vehicle inspection service & increase road patrolmen numbers
Restore members' right to elect all 9 directors
A number of scandals have been reported in the press in the last years. Chief amongst these are the donations to political parties, and the use of company funds to promote the incumbent Board. I invite you to read the following articles:

I urge you, your family and friends to take a stand and voice your support for MAG policies
