New York State Farm Bureau Names Senator Latimer to its “Circle of Friends”
Agricultural organization recognizes him for supporting the farm families of New York
The New York State Farm Bureau, a statewide organization representing thousands of farms and tens of thousands of farmers and farm workers across the state, announced that it has named Senator George Latimer (D-Westchester) as a member if it’s “Circle of Friends”. Bestowed on state legislators for their support of farms and farmers, the “Circle of Friends” designation is based on the legislators’ voting record on issues of importance from the 2015 session.
“With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, I am pleased to be recognized by the people of New York who make this holiday possible. The history of the holiday is about sharing the harvest, and I am honored to be recognized for supporting those who make it possible,” said Senator Latimer.
Organized in 1911, the New York Farm Bureau is the state’s largest agricultural advocacy and educational organization. Among its other legislative priorities, the Farm Bureau is working on increasing urban and suburban access to healthy local produce and other food items.
King Andrew has decreed that the Syrian refugees should be let in. Note to the King, in light of recent events, it is totally reasonable for your fellow Governors to demand information on how the Feds plan to vet these s0-called refugees on the grounds of National Security.
