Grenada County Farm Bureau showed their appreciation for the county’s elected officials at a breakfast earlier this month.
Sen. Lydia Chassaniol, Sen. David L. Jordan, Rep. Kevin Horan, Rep. Karl Oliver, Rep. Tommy Reynolds, Grenada Mayor Billy Collins, and many other Grenada city and county elected officials were in attendance to meet with Farm Bureau members. The breakfast allowed each elected official to introduce themselves to Farm Bureau members and discuss the work they are doing.
“We appreciate the work Farm Bureau does for our city and county,” Collins said. “I’m happy to be here.”
In addition to mingling with their elected officials, members had the opportunity to hear from Mississippi Farm Bureau President Mike McCormick, MFBF Northern Vice President Donald Gant, MFBF Public Policy Coordinator Lee Thorne and MFBF Region 3 Manager Britton Hatcher.
McCormick and Thorne updated the members on the 2018 Legislative Session and 2018 Special Legislative Session, the Farm Bill, trade and rural broadband.
“I appreciate the leadership here and their votes to get something done with roads and bridges and other issues important to our Farm Bureau members,” McCormick said. “We’re just proud to be a supportive partner of our legislator and the other elected officials who take care of our members.”
“Your Mississippi Farm Bureau staff and these people sitting in front of you today have been hard at work for you,” Thorne said. “We’ve accomplished several things this year, like Right-to-Farm and roads and bridge funding, that will help our members in the long run.”
