Trone Earns ‘Friend of Farm Bureau’ Award from the American Farm Bureau Federation for Supporting American Farmers, Food Security

WASHINGTON — Today, the American Farm Bureau Federation recognized U.S. Representative David Trone as a recipient of the prestigious “Friend of Farm Bureau” Award. The award recognizes Members of Congress who work in support of America’s farmers and ranchers, and food security for American consumers. 

“Farmers make America run. Growing up working on my father’s chicken and hog farm, I learned the hard work and dedication these essential workers put in every day,” said Congressman David Trone. “I’ve never forgotten those lessons, and they help inform and guide my decisions as a lawmaker. I’m honored to receive this award from the American Farm Bureau Federation and will continue working hard to promote policies that support farmers in Maryland and all across America.”

“We are proud to call Congressman Trone a Friend of Farm Bureau during the 116th Congress,” said Wayne Stafford, President of the Maryland Farm Bureau. “His support of Maryland agriculture was strong with his support of the USMCA agreement, disaster relief, Paycheck Protection Program and the Tax Relief Act.  His continued communication with the Western Maryland Farm Bureaus allowed us to let him know of the issues and concerns in Western Maryland.  He worked to make sure these issues were raised and worked to help find solutions.  We want to thank Congressman Trone for making sure Western Maryland has a voice in Washington D.C.” 

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone serves on the Education and Labor, Foreign Affairs, and Joint Economic Committees, where he is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the opioid epidemic, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.
