BUDDY ENDORSED BY A TOP REPUBLICAN IN CAROLINE
“As the only elected Republican on the Caroline County Board of Supervisors and local party Chairman, I know how important it is to be represented by a leader who "Gets it" on all aspects of Governance. Having worked closely with Buddy Fowler over the last several years, I know firsthand his considerable abilities. They include a knowledge base of legislation and Virginia Government from the local level to the General Assembly. Buddy has been a dogged conservative and strong friend to Caroline even before he became a candidate. Perhaps his most important quality is his ability to connect with regular people, something we in Caroline admire. He is one of those leaders who can actually build consensus with his down to earth persona and willingness to talk it over.”

VA FARM BUREAU AGPAC
Hyland “Buddy” Fowler this week received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) AgPAC, a political action committee of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, in the race for the 55th House District (parts of Hanover, Caroline and Spotsylvania Counties) seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.
“I am so proud to have received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC for my election to the Virginia House of Delegates. Agriculture alone represents the largest single industry in the Commonwealth of Virginia with an overall economic impact of $55 billion annually, and provides more than 357,000 jobs in the Commonwealth. But just as important, those engaging in agriculture and forestry are responsible for the outstanding stewardship of our most vital natural resources, our farm land and forests.”
Buddy Fowler is among 88 candidates that Virginia VFBF AgPAC has endorsed for House seats. Endorsements were made based on the recommendations of local committees of farmers.
“Each of these candidates has demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs and challenges farmers are facing and/or have proven their support through their favorable voting records while holding positions in the General Assembly. We believe the candidates will help agriculture and forestry maintain its vitality as the number one industry in Virginia”, said Wayne F. Pryor, chairman of VFBF AgPAC and VFBF president.
The non-partisan VFBF AgPAC was created by Farm Bureau in 1999 and employs in-kind contributions to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues. A full list of candidates endorsed by the committee can be viewed online at VaFarmBureau.org
