Commissioner's Comments

State ag department assisted the farm community through a month marked by challenges

Agriculture Commissioner

Anytime you start a new job, it can be hectic as you learn the ropes. That certainly is true for a public official, who must get to know her or his staff and hit the ground running – the public’s business doesn’t stop to allow a new office holder to get settled in. But even by that standard, my first month as your agriculture commissioner was one for the record books.
