Members of the Bureau, Marshall Putnam, and Will County Farm Bureaus presented State Senator Sue Rezin (R-Peru) with the Illinois Farm Bureau “Friend of Agriculture” award.
“Agriculture represents the largest industry in Illinois,” said Senator Rezin. “I am truly honored to have received this recognition for my work in support of our farm and farm families.”
According to the Illinois Farm Bureau, this award honors state and federal legislators who understand the importance of Illinois Agriculture. Recipients of this award recognize the far-reaching benefits of Illinois' agricultural products and the importance farmers play in providing quality food, fiber and fuel for our State, Nation and World.
“Senator Rezin has been, and continues to be a strong leader at the capitol,” said Kevin Semlow, Illinois Farm Bureau State Legislative Affairs Director. “Her ability to understand and take action on agricultural issues that are important to her constituents proves why we need to send her back to Springfield.”
“Farmers represent the small businesses that drive our state economy,” said Senator Rezin. “We must continue to work with the entire ag community to move the industry, and this state forward.”
