We were truly honored to welcome Michigan’s Governor Rick Snyder to our family’s farm yesterday as Michigan Farm Bureau and GreenStone Farm Credit Services announced their endorsement and support of Governor Snyder in his re-election campaign. Our family is proud to be a part of each one of these two great organizations and when the two of them partner up for an event you know that good things are going to happen for Michigan agriculture.
It was a breath of fresh air yesterday to hear Governor Snyder’s comments regarding the role of government and that the government exists to serve its citizens and not to tax and spend their hard earned money. At the end of the day it is his goal that the citizens of Michigan feel they have bought the right amount of government. Under Governor Synder’s leadership 1500 regulations have been eliminated and 100 recommendations have been put into effect to make existing regulations more efficient. As Clay Crumbaugh stated in his remarks at yesterday’s event, “Governor Synder we have noticed some of these on our farm and we thank you for allowing us to spend more time farming and less time taking care of the government.”
Governor Snyder has repeatedly shown his support for Michigan Agriculture. He recognizes its importance in Michigan’s Economy as a $96 billion industry and on his website Reinventing Michigan he calls Michigan Agriculture a "Rock Star Industry." We thank him for his collaboration with Michigan Agriculture and look forward to 4 more years of Governor Synder’s leadership.
