BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Illinois Farm Bureau (IFB) ACTIVATOR today announced David Reis, State Representative of the 109th district, has been endorsed by the local ACTIVATOR trustee committee.
Local trustee members unanimously endorsed Reis based upon his unwavering commitment to farmers, his strong beliefs in the rural way of life, and his dedication to fight for the residents of the 109th district in Springfield.
“David is a hard-working farmer. He brings that same dedication and passion to Springfield to fight for the farmers and communities of his district” stated Kevin Semlow, Director of State Legislation for the Illinois Farm Bureau. “He is a tireless voice for the agriculture community. We need more leaders at the State Capitol like David who are willing to run into the fight instead of running away!”
“David’s common sense approach is needed in the State Capitol. His support of the businesses and communities in his district has been unwavering. He has been at the forefront of defending items like the sales tax incentives on agricultural inputs and machinery and encouraging the use of our locally grown commodities and livestock,” Semlow added.
The endorsement by IFB ACTIVATOR places Reis in a group of select individuals in the state who understand the leading role agriculture plays in Illinois. It proves that he comprehends the benefits of agriculture, and that those benefits extend far beyond the vital function of feeding Illinois, the nation, and the world.
ACTIVATOR, Illinois Farm Bureau’s Political Involvement Fund, is a voluntary, non-profit, segregated fund promoting the economic and social well-being of farmers which seeks to help elect pro-farm candidates no matter their party affiliation. ACTIVATOR trustees are local Farm Bureau leaders representing each county in the Illinois General Assembly Legislative District.
