CropLife America Applauds Nomination of Steve Censky as USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue's No. 2

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 12:55:02 CDT

CropLife America Applauds Nomination of Steve Censky as USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue's No. 2 Yesterday, the White House announced they would nominate Stephen Censky, the current American Soybean Association CEO, as US Department of Agriculture (USDA) deputy secretary. CropLife America (CLA) commends the administration on its choice and is excited to work with Mr. Censky, once confirmed.

“CLA is exited to work with Steve as USDA Deputy Secretary,” stated Jay Vroom, president and CEO of CLA. “USDA is sure to benefit from his proven leadership and experience in agriculture. His background growing up on a soybean, corn, and diversified livestock farm near Jackson, Minnesota, speak to the strengths he will bring to the department, and ensure farmers and ranchers on the ground will have a voice at the federal level.”

After earning his bachelor of science degree in agriculture from South Dakota State University and masters in agriculture science from the University of Melbourne, Australia, he became a congressional staffer in Washington D.C. First working as a legislative assistant for Sen. Jim Abdnor, R-S.D, and later serving in both the Reagan and George H. W. Bush administrations at USDA, Censky brings a high level of experience to Secretary Perdue’s staff.
