On Tuesday CCM Director of Governmental Affairs Jacob Villagomez organized a tour of WN Citrus Nursery and Johnston Farms Packing House for California legislative staff members of the Kern County legislative delegation. The tour was attended by staff members of Senator Melissa Hurtado, Senator Shannon Grove, Assemblymember Vince Fong, Assemblymember Dr. Jasmeet Bains and the Senate Ag Committee.
The tour was led by WN Citrus and Johnston Farms owners Dennis and Stacey Johnston as well as WN Citrus General Manager Zac Green. Attendees learned about the citrus lifecycle, from the nursery to the packing process. The tour provided a platform for lively discussion among Sacramento staff and industry members about our most complex issues including labor, water and pest and disease.
We would like to thank Dennis, Stacey and Zac for taking the time to educate legislative staff on the importance of citrus in their respective districts they work to represent.
