Endorsement by Farm Women United

Oct 16, 2018


Schroon Lake, NY – After reviewing the agricultural policies supported by Congressional candidates in NY-21, Farm Women United has endorsed Green Party candidate Dr. Lynn Kahn for her strong stance and understanding of North Country farmers, especially dairy farmers.

Farm Women United, a national network started in Pennsylvania, was organized by farm women no longer willing to be ignored or silenced by the powerful special interests currently controlling our nation’s farm and food policies.

“Dr. Kahn will meet with and listen to the actual victims of criminal, federal dairy and trade policies. Those victims are the real dairy farmers  I like to call the blue-collar farmers,” stated Brenda Cochran, President of Farm Women United. “Blue-collar farmers are the backbone of our dairy farming communities.”

Congresswoman Stefanik voted for the 2018 Farm Bill which favors consolidated, industrialized farms over local, family farmers.

“Congresswoman Stefanik is out of touch with our dairy farmers, and beholden to big business, not real farmers. She has had the power for nearly four years to set a fair price for farm milk and has not done that,” said Dr. Kahn. “I am honored to receive the endorsement of Farm Women United. When elected, I will demand a $20 per (hundred pounds) floor price for milk used for manufacturing and Congressional hearings on milk pricing from the point of view of real working farmers.”

Dr. Kahn has also been endorsed by Veterans In Politics International.
