Statement of NCFC President and CEO Chuck Conner on the Confirmation of Tom Vilsack as Secretary of Agriculture

Tue, 23 Feb 2021 14:01:08 CST

Statement of NCFC President and CEO Chuck Conner on the Confirmation of Tom Vilsack as Secretary of Agriculture The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives congratulates Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack on his confirmation in the Senate today. Secretary Vilsack is a true champion of America’s farmers and ranchers, and the rural communities where they live and work; his experience and understanding of the Department means that he can hit the ground running at this critical time.

“Indeed, the secretary will arrive at the U.S. Department of Agriculture facing a series of pressing challenges. In the face of the pandemic and its economic fallout, Secretary Vilsack will need to lead USDA in helping agriculture and rural America to build back more resilient and more equitably than it was before. NCFC and our country’s farmer co-ops look forward to contributing to this difficult task in the years ahead.

“Moving forward, it will also be imperative to build out the leadership team around Secretary Vilsack at USDA. Therefore, we urge the Senate to take up the nomination of Jewel Bronaugh as deputy secretary of agriculture without delay.”
