Head of Government Affairs
Every farm and ranch, and the businesses they rely upon for inputs are impacted by state and federal laws and regulations. On behalf of the farmer-owners of the Aurora Cooperative, I get to spend my time building relationships with legislators and working alongside government relations people in other agricultural organizations. Much of my time is spent paying attention to bills and regulations that get introduced, visiting members of Congress and submitting comments to agencies such as the EPA or OSHA. It is important that the farmer/rancher and the cooperative they own, the Aurora Cooperative, has a voice in the process of our government to help decrease regulatory burden, create opportunity in expanding markets, and ultimately, protect the “right to farm”.
