Ohio Rep. Michael O’Brien was recently honored at the Trumbull County Farm Bureau Annual Meeting with the “Friend of Agriculture” award from Ohio Farm Bureau’s Agriculture for Good Government Political Action Committee.

The award for incumbent Statehouse candidates is determined by the following criteria:

  • their voting record
  • an issue survey and
  • county Farm Bureaus’ input on their level of engagement.

For incumbents to be considered for the designation, they must have a satisfactory voting record in regard to Ohio Farm Bureau key votes, which during the 132nd General Assembly included:

  • CAUV
  • broadband and
  • water quality.

The screening committees, comprised of the county trustees, can designate one candidate, both candidates or neither candidates as the Friend of Agriculture.

“Congratulations to Representative O’Brien and thank you for your continued support of Ohio Agriculture and Trumbull County Farm Bureau!”

As a member of Farm Bureau, I am glad that this organization takes action when necessary to protect and advance agriculture.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
