BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Illinois Farm Bureau (IFB) ACTIVATOR today announced State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) has been designated a “Friend of Agriculture” by the local ACTIVATOR trustee committee in the 52nd State Senate District.

The endorsement by IFB ACTIVATOR places Bennett in a group of select individuals in the state who understand the leading role agriculture plays in Illinois. It proves that he comprehends the benefits of agriculture, and that those benefits extend far beyond the vital function of feeding Illinois, the nation, and the world.

“Scott Bennett has been a great advocate for the farmers of his district, and we are very appreciative of his support on many important issues to us,” said Bruce Darr, chairman of the 52nd Legislative District ACTIVATOR Committee. “We are excited to
announce Scott Bennett as a Friend of Agriculture, and look forward to working with him far into the future.”

ACTIVATOR, Illinois Farm Bureau’s Political Involvement Fund, is a voluntary, non-profit, segregated fund promoting the economic and social well-being of farmers which seeks to help elect pro-farm candidates no matter their party affiliation. ACTIVATOR trustees are local Farm Bureau leaders representing each county in the Illinois General Assembly Legislative District.
