This is exactly the type of thing the congress needs more of:
Rick Crawford, Arkansas’s 1st District: founded and operates AgWatch Network, which syndicates agriculture news programs to 49 radio stations.
Jeff Denham, California’s 19th District: operates Denham Plastics, a company with $4 million in annual revenue and 10 employees that manufactures agricultural shipping containers. The idea for the business sprang from Mr. Denham’s previous company, a salad-bagging enterprise. He also owns an almond ranch with two employees.
Scott Tipton, Colorado’s 3rd District: with his brother, opened and runs Mesa Verde Pottery, which makes and sells Native American ceramics, employing 22 people. Though the company maintains a well known store near an entrance to Mesa Verde National Park, the company earns most of its revenue, according to the Pueblo Chieftain, from sales to other retailers, such as gift shops and national park concessions.
The more people we see like this in congress the better things will get.
