California Farm Bureau endorses Bigelow for state Assembly
» May 3, 2012 «
Recognizing his lifelong commitment to farming and ranching as well as his consistent focus on responsible fiscal management, the California Farm Bureau Federation has endorsed Frank Bigelow for state Assembly. Bigelow, a Republican, seeks election in Assembly District 5, serving Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Madera, Mariposa, Mono and Tuolumne counties.
During his tenure as a Madera County supervisor, Bigelow has worked to build a budget surplus and has remained focused on reducing government spending and economic reforms to require government to live within its means.
"Our state needs not only to attract new businesses, but also sustain the ones we have and help them thrive," California Farm Bureau President Paul Wenger said. "Frank Bigelow has shown that he wants to keep our farms, ranches and the rest of the business community moving forward."
A resident of the O'Neals area, Bigelow takes an active role in operation of the family cattle ranch, Bigelow Farms, and serves as vice president of a local telephone company. He is also a longtime volunteer fireman and an active member of a number of local agricultural organizations.
"There can't be better evidence of Frank's hands-on approach to leadership than his volunteerism with the fire department, the local agricultural boosters organization, plus Farm Bureau, 4-H and FFA," Wenger said. "Our state needs more individuals like Frank Bigelow, who will step up and use their strong work ethic to get things done."
The California Farm Bureau Federation works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of more than 74,000 members statewide and as part of a nationwide network of more than 6.2 million Farm Bureau members.
