Farm Bureau endorses Tricia Hunter for assembly
» October 4, 2004 «
Assembly candidate Tricia Hunter of San Diego has earned the California Farm Bureau Federation's endorsement for election in the 76th Assembly District. Hunter is seeking election in a district that includes most of the city of San Diego.
"Farmers and ranchers know we must work with our urban neighbors to improve our state," California Farm Bureau President Bill Pauli said. "Tricia Hunter shares our values and will help Governor Schwarzenegger shake up the 'business-as-usual' atmosphere in Sacramento."
Pauli said that Hunter and Farm Bureau agree on the need for state policies that encourage small businesses to thrive.
"As owners of small businesses, family farmers and ranchers seek state policies that encourage innovation and job creation," Pauli said. "Tricia Hunter recognizes that improving the state's business climate will create jobs in cities and rural areas alike."
He said farmers also appreciate Hunter's pledge to avoid new taxes.
"Government must live within its means, just as individual citizens must," Pauli said. "We're pleased that Tricia Hunter will support Governor Schwarzenegger's reforms and seek continued improvements in government efficiency."
San Diego County produces nearly $1.3 billion in crops and commodities annually.
The California Farm Bureau Federation, the state's largest farm organization, will mobilize nearly 90,000 members statewide to influence the outcome of the November election.
