I congratulate Tom on his election and look forward to working with him as we advance the working family farm agenda," said Doug Peterson, Minnesota Farmers Union president.

Delegates to the National Convention will be advocating for the following priorities: stronger action on anti-trust issues, and enforcement of anti-trust laws; and strong support for federal health care reform legislation that offers a robust public option that would allow for all legal residents health care that would not be tied to pre-existing conditions.
