Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
Having read a recent letter to the Dispatch editor, I felt the need to follow up. With so much negative news filling the airways lately, good stuff sometimes gets ignored.
Our congressman, Tom O’Halleran, has been at the forefront of advocating for agriculture and rural communities across Pinal County and Arizona for years. His participation, along with Rep. Grijalva, in the House and Senate Farm Bill Conference Committee has been amazing. Their work resulted in a bill that serves and protects farmers and food safety advocates as well.
Rep. O’Halleran’s position on the U.S. House Committee on Agriculture has provided Pinal County with a strong, knowledgeable and hardworking partner committed to helping the farmers who feed America. When we have something working so well, we should do all we can to stay the course.
We’ll be hearing loud arguments from the right and the left this election cycle. Here in AZ CD1, however, the pragmatic middle finds our Tom O’Halleran steadily doing his job. Let’s keep him there.
