Dickie Bell endorsed by AgPAC
Delegate Dickie Bell(R-20) last week received the endorsement of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC, the organization’s political action committee, in the race for the 20th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.
Bell is among 115 candidates that VFBF AgPAC has endorsed for election to the General Assembly. Endorsements were made based on the recommendations of local committees of farmers.
Candidates who receive VFBF AgPAC endorsements “have demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs and challenges farmers are facing and/or have proven their support through their favorable voting records while holding positions in the General Assembly,” said Wayne F. Pryor, chairman of VFBF AgPAC and president of Virginia Farm Bureau. “We believe the endorsed candidates will help agriculture and forestry maintain its vitality as the No. 1 industry in Virginia.”
The non-partisan VFBF AgPAC was created by Farm Bureau in 1999 and employs in-kind contributions and endorsements to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues. A full list of candidates endorsed by the committee can be viewed online at VaFarmBureau.org.
With nearly 150,000 members in 88 county Farm Bureaus, VFBF is Virginia’s largest farmers’ advocacy group.
Elected to the House of Delegates in 2009, Delegate Bell represents the 20th District, which includes Highland County, parts of Augusta and Nelson Counties, and the Cities of Staunton and Waynesboro. He is currently serving in his third term.
