Seward and Ashkar Included in Farm Bureau’s “Circle of Friends’
State Senators James Seward and Fred Akshar are named to the New York Farm Bureau’s “Circle of Friends”. The honor is based upon each legislator’s voting record on issues of agricultural importance as well as other evidence of legislative support, including sponsorship of bills that New York Farm Bureau has either supported or opposed during the most recent legislative session. 160 legislators statewide were honored. The “Circle of Friends” is not an endorsement, and this distinction only recognizes the 2018 legislative session.
