Car00 qf The family of Mary Sanders would like to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and dona- tions. It is so wonderful to have fam- ily, friends, and people who have shown us so much support during this time. Mary Sanders and boys Letter to the Edttor My view of Vilsack President-elect Obama's choice of former Iowa Governor Tom Vii- sack as Secretary of Agriculture has gotten as much or more atten- tion as any cabinet appointment. There have been Vilsack detrac- tors, the most vigorous from among the foes of agricultural biotech- nology. And some farm organiza- tions expressed concern, behind the scenes, about Vilsack's desire to reform farm programs. Last month I stuck my neck out and said that I think Vilsack is a good choice < blog>. He and I don't always agree, but he's smart and he listens. He shares Obama's views on reform- ing farm programs, investing the savings in conservation and rural development, and on the need for livestock market reforms, such as banning packer ownership of live- stock and ending volume-based price discrimination. Vilsack's biggest challenge will be bringing his skills and intelli- gence to the task of supporting the president and implementing their shared vision. Toward that end, .the Center recently launched a grassroots letter to Secretary Vilsack <www.>. We will deliver the letter, with signa- tures and comments, to Secretary Vilsack personally. Over 1,100 have signed and many have added their thoughts on needed reforms. At the Center, we will continue working to ensure that President Obama and Secretary Vilsack live up to their potential and their promises to rural America. We will keep fighting for a rural Amer- ica that offers genuine opportu- nity to all who live there. We will fight alongside Obama and Vilsack when we can, but we'll also take them on when we have to. We've done it before. John Crabtree, <> Center for Rural Affairs 20 1/2 inches long.
