(Buffalo, N.Y.) – Congressional Candidate (NY-27) and State Senator Chris Jacobs was recently honored with the New York Farm Bureau’s “Circle of Friends” award for his support for issues of importance to the New York farming and agriculture sector. 

“As a State Senator I have always recognized how crucially important farmers are to our region and our country, this is one of our nations largest industries and it ensures we have healthy, fresh food on our tables,” said Jacobs. He continued, “this award is an honor for me and I would like to to reaffirm my commitment to supporting our state’s fantastic farming communities.”

The list recognizes law makers who have supported, voted for, and introduced legislation which helps build up farmers and rural communities. 

Jacobs concluded, “I look forward to supporting legislation in the upcoming 2020 session to advance our farms and rural communities, and I pledge to continue my support in Congress as well.”
