This week Daniella Levine Cava was a guest at the Dade County Farm Bureau Board of Director's meeting.

   She provided an update of her nearly three years in office. Cava was well received by an appreciative agriculture community at the meeting for her efforts to help with their issues, including NAFTA.

   During the most recent Presidential election Cava was a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter.

   Bill Losner, seen here with one of his trademark 'Let's Make America Great Again' hats, was an equally outspoken supporter of then candidate Donald Trump.  

   The two are friends and can agree to disagree on some issues, but 'at the end of the day' are capable of working together respectfully, addressing the many challenges facing Miami Dade County's second leading industry, agriculture.

   At the meeting was one local farmer representing several generations of tomato farmers here, Kern Carpenter, who's livelihood is threatened by the unfair trade practices of NAFTA. Cava gave her support of doing what she can to change the current agreement.

   All in attendance felt it would be a good thing if our elected officials in Washington would put aside their differences and work together for the good of the country.
