From a press release.Morgan Griffith Endorsed by the American Farm Bureau Federation
Christiansburg, VA - Congressman Morgan Griffith has been awarded the American Farm Bureau Federation's "Friend of Farm Bureau" award for his commitment to farmers and agriculture.
"Agriculture is one of Southwest Virginia's largest industries, and I am proud to stand up for farmers and other members of the agriculture community on the issues they care about," said Griffith. "It is an honor to receive this award."
The award is based on Congressman Griffith's voting record on the American Farm Bureau Federation's priority issues. Those issues are established by a board of directors. Other factors include legislation that has been sponsored or co-sponsored and the accessibility and responsiveness of a member to local Farm Bureau groups.
"Everywhere I go across Southwest Virginia, I see and talk with members of Farm Bureau. My office works very hard to stay connected with these community leaders. One of my top priorities as Congressman is serving constituents and I am thankful to the Farm Bureau for what they contribute to the public dialogue."
Virginia Farm Bureau Federation President Wayne Pryor said that Griffith's "attention to tedious amendments and the marathon pace of the federal legislation" is reflected in his designation as a friend of Farm Bureau.
