RURAL COMMUNITIES

Our smaller communities are suffering from decades of inattention and have never fully recovered from the 2008 recession.  Today, they are forced to grapple with many of the same problems facing urban and suburban areas, but without the same resources.  Young people are leaving these communities because the cost of entry into agriculture has soared beyond reach.  


If elected, I will:

  • Oppose policies that support the corporate concentration of agriculture; 

  • Advocate for programs to reduce the barriers to entry for young people who want to farm;

  • Support sustainable development through improved access to the technology, education, health, and transportation resources rural communities need.
