Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel On State Question 805 and the Upcoming ElectionTue, 27 Oct 2020 12:00:58 CDT
With the election right around the corner, Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel says some important things are on the ballot this year, including State Question 805. Associate Farm director KC Sheperd caught up with Moesel and he said after careful consideration, Farm Bureau is encouraging a No Vote on 805 "We feel very strongly that its important on the property crimes, and then when you get involved the crimes like abuse, preying on children over the internet that are removed from felonies as well those have tremendous personal costs aside from even the property cost. There are victims on the property crimes, and there are victims on the abuse-type crimes, and this should not be in our Oklahoma constitution, so we feel very strongly encouraging people to vote NO on 805."
In addition to the state questions on the ballot this year, Moesel said there are also many other important races across the state, including the congressional races that are all important for agriculture. He hopes to see Senator Jim Inhofe back in office next year, "There is nobody that reaches out to us more to want to know our stands on different issues, to ask our input and opinions, he has been just wonderful for so many years, and he has so much influence with other senators, and his impact on our state is hard to measure so we are huge proponents of senator Jim Inhofe." Moesel encourages everyone to study the state questions, all of the candidates, look at all the groups that you might relate to and who they are endorsing and who they are standing up for, and get out there and vote on election day.
In addition to the election, Moesel said Farm Bureau does have some exciting things coming up, including some upcoming sessions on November 5th. "They can attend an in-person meeting to watch that business session and visit with their fellow farmers and ranchers if they want to associate with other folks; if not, they can watch over their iPhone or computer, or they can call and listen in over the telephone," Moesel says they are trying to remain accessible during the Covid 19 pandemic and will also be offering more webinars in the future to keep everyone involved. He says this is a very important year with very important topics on the table, "We're all going to have to be at the table to be involved as there are a lot of important decisions that are forthcoming."
