“I am delighted to be joining NAWG and working with its incredible policy team to advance wheat growers' interest in our nation's capital,” stated Westlin. “It is an important time for growers in Washington, and I am looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and advocating on behalf of the wheat family.”
