From the Ag Information Network, I’m Bob Larson. The Washington Farm Bureau is working on priorities for the coming year as they advocate for agriculture in our state.

First Vice President, Bridget Coon says their job is to keep you up to date on what they’re working on and what’s happening in Olympia …

COON … “Our members are able to get active through the rule-making process which can prevent damaging regulations to increase in our state, and so, we encourage members to keep an eye out for Washington Farm Bureau communications because that’s what’s going to help you get engaged.”

Besides their own advocacy work, Coon says they help you stay connected …

COON … “That’s what we’re designed to do and all we need is members to stay connected with us through communications and be willing when the call comes out, and the call goes out, to come along with us. We’re really stronger collectively.”

Coon says the ag community really knows a thing or two …

COON … “I think the only people who don’t know that farmers and ranchers are not strangers stewardship and good management of resources, and people, and animals, and everything that we do for a living, are our stangers.”

Coon says their goal is to create fewer policy-makers, regulators and members of the public strangers to agriculture, so they can all see what we’re really all about.
