Denise O'Brien gets support from DFA

Got this email the other day...


Democracy for America supports fiscally responsible, socially progressive candidates at all levels of government. That's why we are supporting Denise O'Brien for Iowa's Secretary of Agriculture.

Denise has been an organic farmer and farm activist for over 30 years. She and her husband ran a dairy farm for 20 of those 30 years. During this time Denise became interested in agriculture policy that promotes the family farm. She has helped start several progressive programs to fight corporate influence in farming. In the 1990's she lunched the Women, Food and Agriculture Network -- an organization that supports women in farming.

Support Denise O'Brien
Denise's experience over the past 30 years has prepared her to step forward as a leader in Iowa. When elected she will work to create more opportunities in farming. She wants to reduce the influence of industrial agriculture -- which has a serious impact on family farms and prevents young farmers from entering agriculture. Denise will work with local farmers to clean up the water. This essential resource needs to be protected and preserved. She will also work to boost the local economy by promoting locally owned renewable energy operations.

With your support, Denise can win her campaign and bring progressive values to the Secretary of Agriculture's office. Please visit her website and help her in any way you can.
