Nelson backs Gryder who will fight for Illinois ag in D.C.

Oswego, IL. – Congressional candidate for IL-14 and Kendall County Board Chairman Scott Gryder is announcing on Sep 26th, the campaign endorsement of Phil Nelson. A leader in the Illinois agriculture industry, Nelson is the former president of the Illinois Farm Bureau and the former Illinois Director of Agriculture.

“Agriculture isn’t just a major industry in Illinois, it’s a way of life for many Illinoisans. I’m honored to have the endorsement of Phil Nelson, who knows the agriculture industry in Illinois and understands the unique challenges faced on Sep 26th,” said Gryder. “We’re truly blessed to have some of the best farmland in the world along with hardworking and innovative farmers. This industry has progressed quickly in recent years, going from the average U.S. farmer feeding 28 people to 155 people today.

“But on the other hand, we are seeing more regulations for our farmers coming out of D.C. from Democrats like Joe Biden and Lauren Underwood who are pushing a Green New Deal that is harmful to the farming industry. Imposing burdensome regulations that will restrain American ag and energy is not the way to treat our farmers, nor is 8% inflation, skyrocketing fuel prices, or fertilizer shortages. Farmers have it tough this year thanks to Biden and Underwood, and in November we have the chance to prioritize ag again with Republicans.”

Nelson adds, “Scott Gryder stands for less government, less regulations, and representing each and every one of you.”
