AGA Endorses Luther Strange
Alabama Grocers Association Endorses Luther Strange For US Senate
The Alabama Grocers Association, the leading voice of the grocery industry in the state of Alabama, has officially endorsed Luther Strange for United States Senate. Founded in 1990, AGA is dedicated to advocating for a business climate that creates, protects and promotes the grocery industry in Alabama.
“Senator Strange understands the role of the grocery industry and its importance to the economy of the state of Alabama,” said Ellie Taylor, AGA President. “Federal laws and regulations have a direct impact on our member companies and he will continue to be a great leader in the U.S. Senate.”
Strange graciously accepted the endorsement. “I appreciate this endorsement and the confidence placed in me by the Alabama Grocers Association. For too long, unnecessary federal regulations have been a wet blanket on this industry, keeping them from expanding and hiring. As Alabama’s Attorney General, I fought the expansion of federal red tape, and as your Senator, I will fight even harder to roll it back.”
As Attorney General, Luther Strange fought for grocery related issues including frivolous patent trolls that would prohibit a person from asserting a claim of patent infringement in bad faith and organized retail theft. He was also a leader in opposing costly overregulation and the expansion of the federal government at the expense of the state and Alabama jobs.
“As a member of the Agriculture Committee, Senator Strange will play a vital role in the design of the next farm bill,” said Frank D’Amico, III, BTC Wholesale Distributors. “Programs in this bill include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Woman, Infant’s and Children’s Program (WIC) which have a direct effect on the ability of the grocery industry to serve the needs of their consumers.”
Grocery stores in Alabama generate over $3.6 billion in annual sales. They provide over 25,000 stable reliable jobs with over $750 million in annual wages paid. The AGA represents over 350 grocery related members serving over 1,000 retail outlets.
