I was raised on a farm and understand that Missouri's top industry is agriculture. The value, the work ethic, the ingenuity of our family farms is unparalleled.
Family farms ground our community and help us all realize the importance of having some kind of connection to the food we eat. I believe in empowering family farms and making sure that our children will be able to stay in farming to carry on a very proud tradition we have here in Cole County. I will fight to keep our family farms important for our local economy now and into the future.
