Chrysler dealer asks Boardman trustees to save his dealership

I'll fly 4,000 miles to purchase a car from Frederick Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep. You don't find dealers like him in my state of Alaska.

Car dealer seeks help to save his business

My wife and I live in Anchorage, Alaska. I have a Dodge Challenger on order from Mr. Frederick. My wife and I would have been flying to Boardman, picking up our car, spending money on a motel room, purchasing food, and buying retail goods as well. By Chrysler putting Bob Frederick Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep on the cut list, this will hurt the city harder than most folks know. In talking to Bob he said many of his car sales are from out of state. That means the loss of countless visitor dollars. I hope public officials and residents get behind the Frederick's fight. I feel for those 54 employees working at this dealership. As usual, big government tries to stick it to small town America! Mike & Joleen Hankins - Anchorage, AK

2 Valley dealers must close

My wife and I live in Alaska. I called all over the country looking for a dealer who knew something about the Dodge Challenger. Bob Frederick at Frederick Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep was the most knowledgable and sincere individual I spoke to. I aranged to order a 2010 model vehicle. from his firm. Now i find out he's on the Chrysler list of dealerhips to be closed. This is a terrible shame and a gross error! This mistake need to be corrected. My wife and I not only would have been spending money with Frederick Dodge, but we would have stayed a night in a local motel, as well as ate a few meals in local restaurants. My wife also likes to shop so there's no telling what stores will suffer here. As you can see this Chrysler axing affects others. I would hope the Mayor and city leaders would stand up for these businesses being cut. It's the right thing for them to do! Thanks for your time. Michael Hankins - Anchorage, AK
