MADISON – Barbara Dittrich of Oconomowoc has been endorsed by the Volunteers for Agriculture (VFA) Committee for the 38th Assembly District. VFA is the political action arm of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation.
“Barbara Dittrich was clear in her support for use value assessment, Right to Farm and livestock siting, three key areas our farmers look for continued support,” Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Senior Director of Governmental Relations Rob Richard said. “Barbara recognizes farms for what they are – family owned businesses trying to survive tough economic times and overreaching regulation can severely hamper their success.”
The 38th Assembly District includes portions of Dane, Jefferson and Waukesha counties. Dittrich is a Republican seeking an open seat.
“Farmers in the 38th Assembly District will be well served by electing Barbara Dittrich,” 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.
