NY Farm Bureau Circle of Friends

With election time drawing near, I would like to point out the names of local government representatives who have acted with the state's number one industry in mind....agriculture that is.

Here is a link to this year's NY Farm Bureau Circle of Friends

Note that longtime senator, Hugh Farley, made the list, as he has for as long as I can remember.

So did Assemblyman George Amedore.

When we had our milk marketing issues a couple of years ago, and lost our milk company, both men put staff on the job of finding out what we could do to fix our terrible situation. George even called me personally and we talked for an hour or more on farm issues and what was going on in Albany. They both listen when farmers explain our issues and seem to understand how our business works.

Senator Darrel Aubertine also made the list. He is not local, but he has worked hard for ag in the state. Raised on a dairy farm himself and still raising his family on their diversified farm, the man gets it, as so few do.
