FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MADISON – André Jacque of De Pere has been endorsed by the Volunteers for Agriculture (VFA) Committee for the 1st Senate District. VFA is the political action arm of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation.
“André Jacque has a strong knowledge of agricultural issues that impact Wisconsin’s farmers and understands that overburdensome regulations can hinder farm families,” Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Senior Director of Governmental Relations Rob Richard said.
The 1st Senate District includes Door and Kewaunee counties and portions of Brown, Calumet, Manitowoc and Outagamie counties. Jacque is a Republican seeking an open seat.
“Our local farmers who interviewed the candidates recognized that André has a good record of supporting agriculture and is best suited to be a reliable voice for Wisconsin farm families in the State Senate,” said Richard.
The Volunteers for Agriculture Committee is comprised of 18 farmers from across the state and 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 with members of every farm size, commodity and management style.
