MADISON – Kim Butler of Balsam Lake has been endorsed by the Volunteers for Agriculture Committee for the 28th Assembly District. VFA is the political action arm of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation.
“Kim understands that good farming practices and land stewardship go hand-in-hand,” said Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Senior Director of Governmental Relations Rob Richard. “Farmers are constantly looking for a balanced approach to agriculture and conservation efforts and we believe Kim will also seek that balance in the Capitol.”
The 28th Assembly District includes portions of Burnett, Polk and St. Croix counties. Butler is a Democrat seeking an open seat.
“The local farmers who interviewed the candidates in Assembly District 28 recognized that Kim stands out as someone who will listen and seek common sense solutions to the issues impacting agriculture,” 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.
