Sen. Brad Hawkins is being recognized for his efforts to support Washington agriculture.

Hawkins, who serves the 12th District, has been named a 2022 Champion of Agriculture by the Washington Farm Bureau.

In its email informing Hawkins of the award, the Farm Bureau wrote, “You have shown through your support and voting in the 2022 Legislative session that you truly care about Washington’s farmers and ranchers. You are receiving this honor because you received a score of 100 percent on our annual vote record. Thank you for your dedication to Farm Bureau members and the priorities of our member families.”

“I’m very honored to receive this recognition and really appreciate the Farm Bureau for selecting me,” said Hawkins. “I’m proud of my 100 percent voting record in support of our orchardists and farming families because standing with them and their issues benefits all of us. I’ve always prided myself on supporting agriculture, which is so important to North Central Washington, so it is very special to be recognized.”
