The Colorado Farm Bureau has awarded State Sen. Ellen Roberts with the Friend of Farm Bureau Pinnacle Award for her leadership and support of Colorado’s agricultural community during the 2012 legislative session.
“It is a tremendous honor to receive this award from the Colorado Farm Bureau,” said Roberts. “Colorado’s agricultural community plays an important role in our state’s economy, employing over 100,000 people across the state. I remain committed to supporting our farmers and ranchers throughout Colorado.”
The Friend of Farm Bureau Pinnacle Award is the highest honor that can be bestowed on a legislator. The award is given to legislators who have demonstrated great support of the industry and have an exemplary voting record on legislation that is vital to the agricultural community.
