The WFB PAC is a powerful proactive tool to support candidates who have a proven track record as ag-friendly and have a similar vision for a strong agricultural presence in Washington State.
The WFB PAC focuses on races for the state Legislature and statewide offices. The criterion for support is a willingness to support Farm Bureau Policy and our priority issues. Political affiliation with a particular party is not required.
The purpose of the PAC is to expand, promote, and complement the activities of Washington Farm Bureau and its members.
We work across aisles, parties, and affiliations to protect and promote agriculture and rural values. Relationships with legislators are key. Your generous contribution will help us cultivate and maintain those relationships and help advance our work at the Capitol.
To be successful, we need the support and involvement of Washington Farm Bureau members like you who believe lawmakers must preserve Washington’s agricultural heritage by:
- Protecting farmers from burdensome taxes, fees and regulations
- Protecting access and promote expansion to an affordable agricultural water supply
- Verifying environmental and land-use regulations are practical, non-conflicting, agriculturally productive and scientifically sound.
- Ensuring a stable, legal work force
- Improving farm-to-market access
- Continuing to expand access to rural broadband
The WFB PAC endorses candidates for office based on recommendations from our County Farm Bureau Candidate Evaluation Committees. The WFB PAC Board of Trustees meets to consider recommendations from these county committees and votes to endorse candidates who share our philosophy and basic principles, including support for agriculture.
