As someone who works in the agriculture industry, I can tell you that those of us within the community are feeling left behind by our elected officials. Water restrictions, outrageous regulations and high taxes are stifling our local economy and smothering job creation.
That is why I support leaders like supervisor and family rancher Debbie Arnold, who are fighting to keep our important industry on track.
The success of our local economy depends heavily on the success of our local farmers and ranchers. I am a Debbie supporter because she possesses experience in the agriculture businesses. On her family ranch, Debbie lives the struggle those of us are forced to endure every day.
Our government needs more leaders like Debbie who understand our economy and who are not afraid to stand up for local farmers and ranchers. She has the right kind of experience, and she truly appreciates the significance of our work.
