Michigan Farm Bureau Endorses Pamela M. Sossi, Esq. for the 1st House District
Detroit – Michigan Farm Bureau’s AgriPac Committee released the list of its Primary Election endorsements, including a nod for Pamela Sossi’s campaign in Michigan’s 1st House District. AgriPac’s “Friend of Agriculture” endorsement recognizes Pamela’s exceptional support for the agriculture industry, as the granddaughter of farmers from Michigan’s Thumb region.
"We need leaders who understand, appreciate and respect agriculture's contribution to Michigan's economy," said Sarah Black, AgriPac secretary and director of MFB's Public Policy and Commodity Division. "It's one of Michigan Farm Bureau's top priorities to identify and help elect Friends of Agriculture."
“I'm honored to receive the support of the Michigan Farm Bureau, an organization that represents thousands of family farmers and producers across our great state,” said Pamela Sossi. “Agriculture is the second largest sector of our economy and supports nearly one in four jobs. I am committed to fighting every day for our farmers and the agricultural economy of Southeastern Michigan.”
Michigan Farm Bureau is the state's largest general farm organization, representing almost 200,000 members statewide.
The 1st District includes the cities of Harper Woods and Grosse Pointe Woods as well as portions of Detroit and Grosse Pointe Shores. The Primary Election is August 2.
