The Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) welcomes the nomination of Governor Sonny Perdue as Secretary of Agriculture for the Trump Administration, says Daren Coppock, president and CEO of ARA.
Gov. Perdue is familiar with the economic sector he will oversee both as an elected official in the State of Georgia and as a former agri-businessman himself.
This familiarity is critical in the agricultural world, as the nature and nuances of the issues to be addressed are quite different than other sectors of the economy. His experience leading to this point gives him a firm understanding of the importance of issues like regulatory reform, trade, and agricultural labor to everyone in the food supply chain.
