The 2020 MI GreenStone PAC contribution campaign was largely successful with over $18,000 being contributed by more than 260 Michigan GreenStone customers. This is another strong representation of the support members have for the MI GreenStone PAC. Your board of directors and management team have diligently evaluated legislative leaders and will be sharing the importance of rural communities, agriculture, and the Farm Credit System with elected officials.
In the fourth year of the WI Farm Credit PAC Contribution Campaign over $1,000 was contributed by Wisconsin GreenStone customers. The WI Farm Credit PAC funds will also be disbursed by your directors and management team in coordination with the Cooperative Network in Wisconsin after an evaluation process.
The AgriBank District 2020 Farm Credit PAC drive competition brought in almost $260,000 in contributions from 14 associations’ staff and directors. These funds are used to support federally elected officials. Over 150 GreenStone employees and directors directly contributed over $20,000 of that total. A portion of the Farm Credit PAC funds will be allocated to the GreenStone territory and your directors and management will assist in the delivery and communication of the Farm Credit message.
As the debate over policies critical to rural communities and agriculture heats up, we are well positioned to carry forward the messages of Farm Credit and our customers. In fact, the work has already begun with Ag Day in both Michigan and Wisconsin. Our success will be determined by the strength of the relationships we have with elected officials, and that is why your support of the PACs is so important.
Thank you for being a champion of our communities and the agricultural industry!
