During the National Farmers Union annual Legislative Fly-In this week, several members of the Ohio congressional delegation were awarded the Golden Triangle, NFU’s highest legislative award. They are:
Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio; Rep. Tim Ryan, D-17th; Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-9th; and Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-11th.
The annual award is presented to members of Congress who have demonstrated leadership and support policies that benefit America’s family farmers, ranchers, fishermen and rural communities.
“Recipients of the Golden Triangle Award have been strong advocates for family farmers and ranchers, and support similar principles and policies as Farmers Union,” said NFU President Roger Johnson. “We are pleased to honor those who have proven to be true allies of our organization and our members across the country.”
