Farm Bureau ‘friends’ 2 local legislators

Two local legislators, State Senator Terry Gipson (D, 41st district) and State Assemblywoman Didi Barrett (D, 106th district), have been named two of New York Farm Bureau’s “Circle of Friends.”

The annual award, given to 101 state legislators this year, is an indication of the lawmaker’s support of New York agriculture and the Farm Bureau and is based on each legislator’s voting record on issues of agricultural importance as well as other evidence of legislative support, including sponsorship of bills that New York Farm Bureau has either supported or opposed during the most recent legislative session.

“The selected lawmakers from both the Assembly and Senate were chosen for their commitment to the hard-working farm families in New York. Each friend has demonstrated that they understand the importance of agriculture to the people of their legislative district, and how farming significantly impacts the economy of this great state,” said Dean Norton, President of New York Farm Bureau, in a news release.
