County Farm Bureau Leaders Talk Issues with Congressman Mark Green

Linden, TN. March 20, 2019 – County Farm Bureau leaders from all corners of the 7th Congressional District gathered to show appreciation to Congressman Mark Green for his dedicated service to the 7th district of Tennessee and to the agricultural community, listen to an update from Washington and share concerns and issues with him from the agricultural perspective.

“It’s great any time I can meet with the people who are my boss…and the people in my district are my boss,” said Congressman Green. “I’m enjoying the opportunity to stay on top of the issues that are important to Tennessee, letting them know what I’m doing and the things that are on my and my team’s heart, and of course listening to what is on their hearts and taking lots of notes.”

For almost 100 years, since 1921, Tennessee Farm Bureau has been a voice for farmers on policy matters. From the county all the way to the state level, Farm Bureau leaders take their responsibility as a public policy organization for farmers and by farmers very seriously. By meeting with their elected officials to not only share their issues, but also to express their thanks, Farm Bureau leaders underscore the importance agriculture has to our state and nation.
