I am a 69-year-old grandfather of six, Vietnam War Veteran and board member of Iowa CCI Action Fund. I am not a farmer, but I support Iowa farmers and the work they do for our state and for our country.
Bernie Sanders believes in farms and ranches too. As president, Sanders will enact a moratorium on factory farms and push for legislation addressing climate change; protecting the environment; and supporting regenerative, sustainable, independent family farming practices.
Our agricultural system has been co-opted by and for big money corporations, leaving our small towns and rural communities economically devastated and our land and water poisoned. Bernie Sanders knows that it will take a massive people’s movement to break Wall Street’s control of our food systems and bring economic opportunity back to our small towns.
That’s why Sanders is the best choice for president: to help “us” win the big changes we need and rebuild the Iowa we want to see to make our state a “Place to Grow” for all Iowans - not just the select few.
