ASA Congratulates Harden on Confirmation as Deputy Secretary of Agriculture

ASA Congratulates Harden on Confirmation as Deputy Secretary of Agriculture
The American Soybean Association (ASA) offered its congratulations Monday to Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Krysta Harden. Deputy Secretary Harden was confirmed by the Senate late Thursday night on a bipartisan vote. Prior to her tenure at USDA, Ms. Harden served on ASA's staff as a Washington representative. ASA President Danny Murphy, a soybean farmer from Canton, Miss., released the following statement:

"ASA sends its warmest congratulations to Deputy Secretary Harden on her confirmation. Ms. Harden was a treasured member of the soy family for many years and took the same work ethic and persistence she showed here at ASA to champion all farmers and USDA stakeholders as Chief of Staff to Secretary Tom Vilsack.

"Ms. Harden is a consensus builder, and exactly what is needed to connect the department's diverse group of stakeholders. As Americans become further removed from the sources of their food, fiber and fuel, USDA faces a daunting challenge, as does all of agriculture. We have no doubt that the Deputy Secretary will meet this challenge with the same balanced, pragmatic approach she has always used to tackle each issue.

"ASA commends the Senate for its speedy and bipartisan work to confirm Ms. Harden, and look forward to working with her in her new role."
