Sen. Mark Mullet (D-Issaquah) received the 2023 “Legislator of the Year” award from the Washington Farm Bureau at its annual statewide meeting in November.

The Farm Bureau lauded Mullet for his work to support farmers, ensure the state keeps its promise to agriculture about gas prices and the cost of compliance with the state’s Climate Commitment Act, provide funding to improve our water systems and drought protections, and more.

“I want to thank the Washington Farm Bureau for this award. Speaking as a guy who runs restaurants, I can say for sure that without farmers, nobody’s getting fed. The Farm Bureau is an important stakeholder to me, and I’m honored to have their partnership,” Mullet said. “I’m committed to working to ensure the state keeps its promises to farmers when it comes to fuel prices, workforce issues, access to water, and more. Farmers are a backbone of our state’s economy, and we’ve got to help them succeed.”

The Washington Farm Bureau represents more than 46,000 members across the state, governed by and representing farm and ranch families united for the purpose of analyzing their problems and formulating action to achieve educational improvement, economic opportunity, and social advancement.
