Senator John Boozman was in the area last week, touring the area over two days and touching base with constituents. While in Van Buren County he met with groups including the Nature Conservancy, which gave him a tour of its efforts in the area, including the Bluffton Preserve. Also on the agenda was a Thursday-morning meeting with small business representatives. Meetings with community representatives, including government officials, were held.
The senator was kind enough to make a stop at the Van Buren County Democrat office and provide some insights into what issues he is facing in the national legislature and how this impacts Van Buren County.
Boozman, the ranking Republican on the Senate Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation, was attentive during the Nature Conservancy presentation, which took place just prior to the interview. This led to an interview point about the recently-passed Farm Bill and the potential pressure of legislation and taxes on area farmers.
