IDFA Supports Vilsack Nomination, Backs Thornton for USDA Under Secretary

Jan 12, 2009

IDFA voiced its support for former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack to become the next secretary of agriculture in a letter sent last week to Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), chairman of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee. In a separate letter to President-elect Barack Obama's transition team, IDFA recommended the appointment of Dr. Janey Thornton, a school nutrition expert and board member of the Milk Processor Education Program, to the position of under secretary of agriculture for food, nutrition and consumer affairs.
