Members, legislators talk issues at 2019 Ag Day at the Capital

Braving ice and snow, hundreds of Farm Bureau members gathered in downtown Columbus to meet one-on-one with their state senators and representatives during Ohio Farm Bureau’s annual Ag Day at the Capital Feb. 20. Ohio Farm Bureau priority issues such as the biennial state budget, water quality, economic development, infrastructure and energy were discussed, along with a host of other community issues.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and OFBF Executive Vice President Adam Sharp took part in a “fireside chat” to discuss infrastructure, education and water quality, among other topics. DeWine vowed to make it a point to work with the agricultural community.

“Our way of operating whether on this issue or any other issue is to bring people together and bring agriculture to the table,” DeWine said.

 

OFBF Senior Director of Corporate Communications Joe Cornely and Dorothy Pelanda, director of the Ohio Department of Agriculture, followed DeWine and Sharp.

Throughout the day, Farm Bureau members visited with state senators and representatives and their staffs at the Statehouse and Riffe Center in downtown Columbus. The annual Ag Day at the Capital event embodies the grassroots efforts of Ohio Farm Bureau member volunteers.
