Ronnie Ansley will be joining us tonight at 7:00 p.m. to take your questions. Please join us this evening if possible, but if you can't be here please feel free to leave questions on this thread. Here's a little information from his site:
We need to focus on creating jobs, reducing fuel costs and making North Carolina the leader in food, fiber and fuel production through agriculture. We must invest in renewable-sustainable green energy sources for fuel production. These bio-fuels can be made from renewable sources – agriculture products. We must become energy independent to help lower fuel costs and cut our dependence on foreign oil. And we can do this without using corn or soybeans. We should use corn and soybeans to feed people and animals.
Agriculture is the number one economic industry in North Carolina, contributing about $73 Billion dollars to our economy. We need real leadership to bring everyone involved together and move us forward in growing our economy, keeping our food safe and affordable, and in making North Carolina number one in bio-fuels.
Ansley is certainly qualified for the job having worked in agriculture his entire life. He received his undergraduate degree in Agriculture Education from NC State and his masters in the same field from Clemson. Ansley went on to receive his law degree from the Mississippi College School of Law.
We look forward to having Ronnie visit with us this evening. Please join us at 7:00 p.m. with questions ready.
