Comment: NSAC Applauds Appointment of Adrienne Wojciechowski to

Assistant Secretary for Congressional Relations at USDA
 

Washington, DC, July 28, 2021 – In response to the announcement of President Biden’s appointment of Adrienne Wojciechowski to serve as Assistant Secretary for Congressional Relations at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), NSAC issued the following comment:

“The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) applauds yesterday’s announcement that President Biden has appointed Adrienne Wojciechowski to serve as Assistant Secretary for Congressional Relations at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).  Wojciechowski brings a deep commitment to advancing sustainable agriculture, local and regional food systems, and rural prosperity.  During Wojciechowski’s tenure as Senior Policy Advisor for Agriculture, Environment, and Energy to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), NSAC presented her with the 2017 Champion of Sustainability Award during the NSAC Winter Meeting in January 2018. As a well-deserved award recipient, we know Wojciechowski is a staunch advocate for agriculture, conservation, and climate solutions who knows how to work closely with Congress and community stakeholders. The team here at NSAC has enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate with Wojciechowski over the years, particularly on the 2018 Farm Bill and on agricultural appropriations, and we know she is well-suited to this new role.”
