Ohio Sen. John Eklund was recently honored at the Geauga 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:
- broadband and
- water quality.
The screening committees, composed of the county trustees, can designate one candidate, both candidates or neither candidate as the Friend of Agriculture.
Congratulations to Senator Eklund and thank you for your continued support of Ohio agriculture and Geauga County Farm Bureau!
