CULTIVATING SUPPORT FOR ANN WAGNER IN 2020 ELECTION
Statewide Agriculture Association Announces Endorsement
(JEFFERSON CITY)–The Missouri Corn Growers Association (MCGA), a membership organization working for the betterment of Missouri corn growers, has endorsed U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner (MO-02) in the upcoming November election.
“We are honored to lend our support to Ann Wagner for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives,” stated MCGA President Mike Moreland of Harrisonville. “Congresswoman Wagner has worked tirelessly to support Missouri’s farmers, fighting for agriculture issues in her tenure as an elected official, especially during these uncertain times of COVID-19. From farm bill to trade to ethanol, she stands firm on crucial corn-related issues and understands the importance of cultivating the future of agriculture. We extend our thanks to Congresswoman Wagner for her dedication to corn growers.”
To receive an endorsement from MCGA, Wagner had to meet criteria established by the board of directors, a governing body comprised of 14 corn growers throughout Missouri. These standards include a strong voting record on MCGA’s top issues, as well as being a recipient of the organization’s esteemed Public Servant Award.
“I am proud to have the support of the Missouri Corn Growers Association,” Wagner said. “I have always supported free and fair trade, was proud to vote in favor of the farm bill, and know just how important agribusiness is to our state’s economy. Now, more than ever, our Missouri farm families need the support of their representatives in government to make sure they are able to keep doing their job of feeding the nation and exporting commodities around the globe.”
The Missouri Corn Growers Association was formed in 1978 to advance policies that will help protect the rights of members, build new markets for corn, and increase opportunities through partnerships within agriculture and beyond. To learn more, visit www.mocorn.org.
