Cannon County Farm Bureau leaders recently joined with other county Farm Bureau members from all corners of the 6th Congressional District to show appreciation to Congressman John Rose for his dedicated service to the 6th 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 was a great homecoming, seeing lots of people who I know well and who I have spent my whole life around," said Congressman John Rose. "It is really one of those gratifying moments of serving in Congress when you get to come home and get to see family and friends and neighbors and tell them about what you're hopefully being able to do to represent them in Congress."
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, Cannon County Farm Bureau leaders underscore the importance agriculture has to our state and nation.
"I'm thankful that a longtime resident of our district and supporter of agriculture represents our district in Washington", said Cannon County Farm Bureau President Mark Barker.
