Whitsett honored by state natural resource group

Salem, OR – Oregonians for Food and Shelter (OFS) has named Senator Doug Whitsett (R-Klamath Falls) a Legislative All-Star for the 2007 session. The All-Star designation recognizes Whitsett’s hard work and effective advocacy on behalf of Oregon’s natural resource-related employers and communities.

“Doug Whitsett is a standard bearer the natural resource community can count on,” said Ann Tracy, a local cattle rancher. “Doug’s voice is the first to defend our local family farms and agricultural businesses. He is a staunch advocate for the issues we care about.”

In the 2007, OFS focused on legislation relating to pesticide use, an adequate water supply, and other farm and forest concerns.

“I am honored by the recognition of Oregonians for Food and Shelter,” said Whitsett. “Serving as a voice for farmers, foresters and other family agricultural businesses is a great privilege.”

Oregonians for Food and Shelter is an Oregon-based, non-profit coalition of individuals, businesses and organizations. They are united to promote the efficient production of quality food and forest products while protecting human health, personal property and the environment through the integrated, responsible use of pest management products, soil nutrients and biotechnology.
