I am looking forward to the elections this fall for several reasons. Not only will we likely have several state labeling initiatives on the ballots but these mid-term elections also hold the promise for great change. On November 4, 2014, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be challenged. According to the Roll Call “Casualty List” the turnover in Congress will be especially acute. As of this writing there are 30 members retiring: 24 in the House and 6 in the Senate, with 10 members resigning: 6 from the House and 4 from Senate. With this sea change upon us, how do we create change in our agriculture and food policy? I say it’s time to vote with our food priorities and begin to hold our future Congress accountable!
