Thursday, January 19, 2017 President-elect Donald J. Trump (R) nominated former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue (R) to be the next U.S. Secretary of Agriculture
U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R from Montgomery) applauded President-elect Donald Trump’s selection saying that Perdue is an experienced leader who is very familiar with and dedicated to the interests of farmers.
Congresswoman Roby said, “Governor Perdue is an experienced leader who has represented a wide array of agriculture commodities ranging from peanuts to forestry. He’s been a longtime friend to farmers, and because farming is Alabama’s largest industry, a friend of farmers is a friend of mine.”
