Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC endorses Chris Jones for House seat
Suffolk, August 21, 2015 –
Delegate S. Chris Jones this week received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) AgPAC, a political action committee of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, in his reelection efforts for the 76th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.
“I am honored to receive this endorsement, the agribusiness community is a vital part of the economy of Suffolk and Chesapeake as well as our Commonwealth” stated Delegate Jones.
Delegate Jones is among 87 candidates that Virginia 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 2016 Virginia General Assembly.”
The non-partisan Virginia 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. A full list of candidates endorsed by the committee can be viewed online at VaFarmBureau.org.
