MADISON – The Volunteers for Agriculture (VFA) Committee has endorsed Judge Michael Screnock in the April 3 election to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
“Judge Michael Screnock has a solid understanding of the issues affecting farmers and rural Wisconsin residents, especially when it comes to land use, zoning and water issues,” said Doug Rebout, a Rock County dairy and crop farmer and chair of the VFA Committee. “More importantly, we believe Judge Screnock will read and interpret the law as it’s written.”
Screnock was born and raised in Wisconsin and currently serves as a Sauk County Circuit Court Judge.
“We value his private sector experience mixed with his judicial experience and his understanding of rural Wisconsin,” Rebout added. “We believe he will be a fair and impartial jurist for any agricultural issues that may come before his court.”
Comprised of 18 farmers from across the state, the VFA Committee is Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation’s political action committee. VFA was formed to give farmers a more direct role in electing leaders who best represent agriculture’s interests.
Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is the state’s largest general farm organization, representing farms of every size, commodity and management style.
