Rep. Edming Endorsed by WPA

The Wisconsin Pork Association Board of Directors announced they are endorsing the following pro-livestock and pro-agriculture/agri-business incumbents in the State Assembly and State Senate who are up for election on November 8, 2016.

“The incumbents that we have chosen to endorse have a history of supporting agriculture in general and a variety of issues important to pork production,” said Bill Gnatzig, WPA President and chair of the WPA Public Policy Committee. “We encourage our members to get out and vote on November 8. With many upcoming issues facing agriculture, it remains important to elect members to the Assembly and Senate who understand the daily challenges faced by farmers.”
