The Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) recently joined with more than 600 agricultural groups on a letter of support for Governor Sonny Perdue’s nomination as U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.
This clear demonstration of broad support for the Perdue nomination should help with his Senate confirmation hearing and vote in the Senate Agriculture Committee and during floor consideration. ARA strongly supports his nomination and believes he will provide the necessary leadership in the Trump Administration representing the needs of America’s agribusinesses, farmers, and their rural communities.
Perdue’s background and experience as a farmer, agricultural retailer / businessman, and Governor will serve him well leading USDA as he fully understands the challenges and opportunities faced by our industry. Click here to view the letter of support.
