SAN MATEO, CA - Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) will hold a press conference with Theresa Mar of Mission Motorcycles, a Daly City dealer that carries Zero Motorcycles, at her Make it in America Exhibit at the San Mateo County Fair on Saturday, June 9, 2012 at 11 a.m.

Speier stated, “Zero Motorcycles is yet another example of an idea conceived in a California garage that has grown into an internationally known company. Imagination, innovation and technology have made electric, zero-emission motorcycles a reality – clean fun.” Mission Motorcycles has been carrying Zero Motorcycles since 2009, but has seen a significant uptick in interest in these vehicles this year.
