WUD members urged to vote on November 7
As Election Day approaches Western United Dairymen urges its members to take the time to exercise their right to vote. “There are many important issues and offices to be decided in this year’s election,” said WUD President Case Van Steyn.
“Regardless of which candidate you support or what ballot measures you are for or against, we urge our members to do their civic duty and vote on Election Day. We hope our members will take the time to become educated about the various candidates and propositions. There are many Assembly, Senate, and Congressional representatives who have been strong supporters of the California dairy industry who deserve our support. Likewise, many seeking office for the first time support the values and goals of California dairy families,” said Steyn. Michael Marsh, WUD CEO added, “At times, it seems easy to be complacent or cynical about the election process, but we should never take our right to vote for granted. It is a right that has been paid for with the sacrifice of many lives throughout our nation’s history. We urge our members to honor those sacrifices and become involved by voting on Tuesday, November 7. Some of our supporters may need assistance walking precincts or helping the elderly get to the polls. If you are asked and have the time to help out, we hope that you will,” said Marsh.
