The Minnesota Grocers Association (MGA) has named Representative Denny McNamara (R-Hastings) its 2015 Hero of the Food Industry for his leadership in advocating for the food industry during the recent legislative session.
“Representative McNamara has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to common sense policies that create job growth and economic activity. His leadership during the 2015 Legislative Session supported a free marketplace, did not place undue burdens on local businesses, and helped our neighbors keep their shopping baskets full,” said Jamie Pfuhl, MGA president.
On accepting the award, McNamara said he would continue to advocate for an industry that provides one out of every 20 jobs in the state. “Minnesota has a diverse economy and the food industry is a critical part in creating long-term growth and prosperity,” said McNamara. “Our community is fortunate to have a strong network of job creators for the industry that includes retailers and manufacturers.”
