Delegate Bell Endorsed by Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's AgPAC

Delegate Dickie Bell (R-Staunton) has received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) AgPAC, a political action committee of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, in the race for the 20th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.

“I am honored to have received the endorsement of the Farm Bureau Federation’s AgPAC” said Delegate Bell. “As a representative of one of the top agriculture communities in Virginia, I understand firsthand how critical agriculture production and agribusiness is to our local economy.  With the significant growth of the agritourism sector, particularly right here in the 20th House District, it is important that our state legislature continues to support policies that allow this sector of our economy to flourish.  I am grateful to have the support of the Farm Bureau Federation and I look forward to continuing to work with them if re-elected to continue to advance the Commonwealth’s top industry.”

Delegate Bellis among 94 candidates that Virginia VFBF AgPAC has endorsed for House seats. Endorsements were made based on the recommendations of local committees of farmers.

“Each of these candidates has demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs and challenges farmers are facing and/or have proven their support through their favorable voting records while holding positions in the General Assembly.  We believe these candidates will help agriculture and forestry maintain its vitality as the number one industry in Virginia,” said Wayne F. Pryor, chairman of VFBF AgPAC and VFBF president.  “We look forward to working with them in the 2018 Virginia General Assembly.”

The non-partisan VFBF AgPAC was created by Farm Bureau in 1999 and employs in-kind contributions to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues.
