Joan Ballweg of Markesan has been endorsed by the Volunteers for Agriculture® Committee for the 14th state Senate District. The VFA is the political action arm of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation.
Ballweg was endorsed because of her track record partnering with farmers to protect water, promote land stewardship and to be a strong advocate for Wisconsin’s rural communities. She has also been a supporter of improving roads, bridges and rural broadband access.
The 14th Senate District consists of Green Lake and Marquette counties along with portions of Adams, Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Waushara and Waupaca counties. Ballweg is a Republican seeking candidacy in the August 11 primary election.
The Volunteers for Agriculture® Committee is comprised of 18 farmers from across the state and was formed to give farmers a more direct role in electing leaders who best represent agriculture’s interests.
