TO: Rep. Mike Pompeo
FROM: Sumner County Farm Bureau
RE: Endorsement Letter
The Sumner County Farm Bureau Board of Directors would like to endorse Rep. Mike Pompeo in his campaign for the Kansas 4th District U.S. House of Representatives. He has been responsive to our concerns and has shown fiscal responsibility and common sense in decisions that he has made during this term. We have visited with him on several occasions and he listens and responds to our questions with intelligent thought and then does his best to help with any issues that we have presented.
Rep. Pompeo is steadfast in trying to curb the overreaching regulations that the EPA and other agencies are bent on adopting through rule changes. Rep. Pompeo understands that farmers and ranchers are doing their best to preserve the environment, our quality food and fiber supply and our communities. He recognizes that technology is important in our world these days and is doing his part in presenting common sense adaptation for the new technology, including genetic bioengineering. As a supporter of small businesses, he recognizes that the farms of Kansas are part of that group and add to the economy of Kansas and our nation.
Anthough we have not always agreed with his votes in congress, he has always had very good reasons for the way he did vote. Rep. Pompeo has shown fiscal restraint in a time that it is desperately needed in D.C. Sometimes that is painful for all of us and he has bit the bullet and taken the knocks to support that passion.
For these reasons and others we are proud to say that we will be supporting Rep. Mike Pompeo in his continued service to Kansas in the Kansas 4th District U.S. House of Representatives.
With confidence in our decision,
Sumner County Board of Directors
Helen Norris, President
