Kathy Bernier of Chippewa Falls has been endorsed by the Volunteers for Agriculture Committee for the 23rd Senate District. VFA is the political action arm of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation.
“Kathy understands the challenges farmers are experiencing right now. She knows we need investment in our roads and bridges, in rural broadband and our main street businesses if our small, rural communities are going to survive,” said Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Senior Director of Governmental Relations Rob Richard.
The 23rd Senate District includes portions of Chippewa, Clark, Dunn, Eau Claire, Jackson, Marathon, Trempealeau and Wood counties. Bernier is a Republican seeking an open seat.
“Kathy Bernier has been a very strong and consistent advocate for agriculture since her first election to the Assembly in 2010,” said Richard. “The local farmers that interviewed Kathy believe she will carry that passion and advocacy into the Senate.”
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.
Kathleen Bernier says
Thank you Farm Bureau/Volunteers for Agriculture. You all mean a lot to this state and nation and I know that! I pray that dairy prices go up and for good crop prices. I will always keep our farmers in mind, I know how important farmers are to our economy and good health.
