CropLife sees ally in Ag secretary choice

Agriculture Secretary nominee George "Sonny" Perdue earned the approval of CropLife America recently. The trade group hailed the former governor of Georgia as an ideal choice for the important position in the Trump Administration.

“The USDA is sure to benefit from his proven leadership and experience in managing a large government entity,” Jay Vroom, president and CEO of CLA, said. “His background as a veterinarian and direct connection to the farming community will help to enhance the relationship between the department and those on the ground in modern agriculture in every state who seek to make their voices heard.”

CLA member Rebeckah Adcock, part of President Donald Trump’s campaign agricultural advisory committee, said Perdue has a great grasp on farming and rural America.

“Because of his background and involvement with the advisory committee, he was always a front-runner, and we are very pleased to support him,” Adcock said.
