CCGGA hosted Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen this past month on a tour of an almond huller, farm and a cotton gin. The Assemblywoman toured the Dos Palos Co. Op. Gin and even had the opportunity to drive a tractor! Assemblywoman Olsen is the Vice Chair for the Assembly Ag Committee. The tour was a huge success with the Assemblywoman “tweeting” about her stops along the entire tour! The tour was part of CCGGA’s ongoing program to bring legislators and regulators to our operations to educate about them on the critical issues affecting our industry.
