Nan Named "Friends of Farm Bureau"
Being recognized as a Friend of The Farm Bureau's is a great honor and it's one I'm proud to have earned by working as hard as I can for our farmers in the Hudson Valley. Our farmers and growers are giving their all every day to provide our region with wholesome and delicious local food, to serve not only our nutritional needs but also our economic vitality. I'm grateful for the opportunity to help our agricultural community whenever and wherever they've needed me. I've fought for disaster assistance, successfully lobbied the Department of Labor to reconsider rules that would have adversely affected teenagers working on family farms, and worked to assure that any new wetlands programs accommodate the unique character of our Black Dirt Region. Our family farms deserve an advocate and I am truly privileged to be their friend and their voice in Washington. -Nan
