Rep. Ann Meyer (R-Fort Dodge) was recently designated a “Friend of Agriculture” by the Iowa Farm Bureau Political Action Committee. Meyer is seeking re-election to the Iowa House in District 9, which includes the City of Fort Dodge and parts of rural Webster County.
“Agriculture is the backbone of Iowa’s economy and I’ll always do what I can to support our farmers,” said Rep. Meyer. “In the Statehouse, I’ll work to make it easier pass family farms on to the next generation, keep taxes low, and make sure we don’t overburden producers with unnecessary regulations. That way, Iowa farmers can continue to feed and fuel our state, country, and world.”
“Candidates earn the Friend of Agriculture designation by supporting issues that directly impact Iowa’s agricultural economy,” said Erik Oberbroeckling, a Clayton County farmer and IFBF PAC Chair. “With one in every five Iowans employed in agriculture and ag-related industries, it is essential to have strong advocates for agriculture representing Iowa.”
Meyer is the incumbent in the Iowa House District 9 race, she will face challenger Charles Clayton in Novemeber’s election.
