Nolte: Missouri’s Future Agricultural Leaders Welcomed to State Capitol

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – State Rep. Jerry Nolte, R-Gladstone, welcomed a group of Missouri’s future leaders in the field of agriculture to the state Capitol Thursday. Nolte spoke as part of the Missouri CornRoots Leadership Academy on Dec. 15. The academy held events in Jefferson City on Dec. 14 and 15.

“Our agriculture industry is vital to our state’s economy and legislators like me are dependent on the input of farmers to help in making policy decisions that will move us in a positive direction,” said Nolte, who has a 100 percent voting record on agriculture issues during the last few sessions. “The CornRoots Leadership Academy gives participants a closer look at how legislative policy is created and empowers them to effectively communicate their needs and wants to legislators. The end result will be better agriculture policy that will strengthen what is one of the most important components of our economy.”

The Missouri CornRoots Leadership Academy is designed to identify future grower-leaders and provide the tools to organize and increase grassroots involvement in the political process. Academy participants visit the state Capitol in Jefferson City to see firsthand where policy is made and visit with key legislators to gain an understanding of what goes on behind the scenes.
