Radanovich earns Farm Bureau endorsement for re-election
» September 27, 2006 «
A congressional leader on agricultural, water and energy issues, George Radanovich, has won endorsement for re-election from the California Farm Bureau Federation. Radanovich, R-Mariposa, seeks his seventh term representing the 19th congressional district.
Radanovich, a grape grower, winemaker and former Mariposa County supervisor, represents family farmers and ranchers on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the Resources Committee. He chairs the latter committee's Water and Power Subcommittee and co-chairs the Congressional Wine Caucus.
"As a farmer and the first full-time winemaker to serve in Congress, George Radanovich has a first-hand understanding of the pressures that face farmers and farm-related businesses," said California Farm Bureau President Doug Mosebar. "He has been a champion in the House for family farmers and ranchers, and for restoring common sense to government."
Radanovich serves a district that includes Mariposa and Tuolumne counties, most of Madera County and portions of Fresno and Stanislaus counties. Family farmers and ranchers in the five counties generate nearly $8 billion in sales of crops and commodities annually.
"Californians benefit from George Radanovich's leadership on natural-resources issues," Mosebar said. "His district has gained from his attention to issues concerning water, healthy forests and public-private partnerships to aid the environment."
The California Farm Bureau Federation works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of more than 88,000 members throughout the state.
