Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack brought the administration’s economic message to Kansas City on Friday, saying his department was fostering growth in Missouri that’s “built to last.”
Vilsack met with at least two dozen leaders from farming, electric co-ops, higher education and the Mid-America Regional Council to discuss economic development.
“Missouri’s got a lot going on toward being in the center of a ‘grown in America’ economy,” Vilsack said. “If we grow and make things people want to buy, that will go a long way toward reclaiming the future for the middle class.”
