"Mark understands that Illinois has a strong agriculture sector. He realizes that supporting smart policies that leverage our state’s advantages can help businesses, farmers, employers, and others be successful in Illinois”, said George Beutel, Illinois Farm Bureau ACTIVATOR trustee.
Batinick responded: "I am proud to have the endorsement of the IFB Activator. Agriculture is an important part of our economy and our culture. I will work hard to make sure that a strong economic environment exists in Illinois for agriculture and all of the related businesses that exist because of agriculture."
