Dr. Roger Marshall Endorsed for US House of Representatives by NAWG

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 11:44:30 CDT

Dr. Roger Marshall Endorsed for US House of Representatives by NAWG The National Association of Wheat Growers is excited to endorse Dr. Roger Marshall for the U.S. House of Representatives from the First district of Kansas. As a native Kansan, Marshall values the hard work of farmers, the importance of protecting crop insurance and the farm economy, and projecting the voices of Kansas farmers into DC, where Kansas has not had representation on the House Agriculture Committee for four years.



Dr. Marshall’s background as a farmer allows him to appreciate the needs of Kansans, particularly rural voters, and fight for what is important to them. As the Commissioner for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, Dr. Marshall demonstrated his dedication and commitment to producers by being a voice for them against overly burdensome wetlands regulations and overreach by federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).



“As a Kansas wheat farmer, and a constituent of Marshall’s district, it is important to me that there is someone who I can trust in Washington to advocate for my needs, and the needs of other farmers,” said David Schemm, NAWG Vice President and wheat grower from Sharon Springs, Kansas. “Marshall stands for, and with, Kansas farmers. He has already demonstrated that he is here to listen to the challenges we face in agriculture and our rural communities. NAWG is pleased to support a candidate that will represent the values, principles and integrity that one of the largest ag district in the country is known for. We are confident that our voices will be heard and respected by Dr. Marshall.”



NAWG’s endorsement of Dr. Roger Marshall is intended to speak to his dedication to giving Kansas wheat farmers a voice in Washington. NAWG is confident that Marshall will use his experience and Kansas upbringing to fight for wheat farmers in the upcoming Farm Bill.
