FARFA endorses Susan King in the runoff for State Senate in District 24
Susan King has been a strong advocate for local farms and food. As a member of the House Public Health Committee, Rep. King was an outspoken supporter during the Committee discussions on raw milk, cottage foods, and other local foods bills. She also authored and passed two important bills that make the state health department more accountable to food producers.
Perhaps most importantly, Susan King has spoken up for farmers’ access to water. In a water forum, her opponent supported raising the rates that farmers pay for water, so that farmers would pay the same rates as cities and commercial users — an approach that essentially says that green lawns and golf courses are just as important as food. Susan King was the lone candidate to point out that water is necessary for food, and that raising water rates for farmers not only hurts the farmers, but ultimately the consumers as well.
Help protect the future of farming and local food in Texas by supporting Susan King: spread the word and vote! Remember, you can vote in the runoff even if you didn’t vote in the March elections. (If you voted in the March elections as a Democrat, you cannot vote in the Republican runoff.)
