For Immediate Release: September 24, 2012
RUSHVILLE, IL – State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) was presented with the Illinois Farm Bureau’s Friend of Agriculture Award in a ceremony held during the annual Smiles Day festivities in his hometown of Rushville on Friday. The award, given to state and federal legislators who recognize the importance of agriculture to Illinois’ economy and quality of life, honored Sullivan’s commitment to agriculture and 95% legislative rating from the Farm Bureau.
"As the only farmer currently serving in the Illinois Senate, I’m honored to accept this award from the Farm Bureau," Sullivan said. "It is particularly meaningful to receive this recognition here in Schuyler County, where I’m proud to live and farm. I have a deep, first-hand knowledge of the importance of agriculture to this state and its residents, and I always do my best to serve as a voice for Illinois farmers at the state capitol."
Sen. Sullivan received the award from Schuyler County Farm Bureau Director Kent Prather (left).
