“Our goal is to equip small business owners, farmers and the community as a whole with information about how each candidate will work with small business and farmers to help sustain a vibrant economy in your community,” said Shawn Phetteplace, Wisconsin manager of the MSA.

“The challenges wrought by 2020 have shown a need for clear leadership and creative collaborations if we’re going to revitalize rural Wisconsin,” said WFU President Darin Von Ruden. “These roundtables will provide an opportunity for candidates to share how they would contribute to that vision of vitality for family farms and small businesses.”
