Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President Jim Holte released this statement regarding the announcement of former State Rep. Ed Brooks death:
“Former Rep. Ed Brooks was truly a servant leader and I am deeply sorry to hear of his passing.
He was a huge advocate for agriculture during his multiple terms in the Legislature. Being a former dairyman himself, he understood the need to have support in Madison for rural Wisconsin. The support he gave the agricultural community during his time of leadership will never be forgotten.
Wisconsin Farm Bureau sends its deepest condolences to the Brooks family.”
