Assemblyman Phil Palmesano (R,C,I-Corning) and Assemblyman Chris Friend (R,C,I- Big Flats) recently enjoyed a meeting with student representatives from Future Farmers of America (FFA) in Albany.

“These students are continuing a storied New York State tradition, one that powers our economy in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes Region. They are civic minded and curious, hardworking and dedicated. They are a credit to their schools, their families and the Future Farmers of America,” said Palmesano and Friend in a joint statement.
