Warrenton, VA, October 6, 2011 — Michael Webert this week received the endorsement of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC, the organization’s political action committee, in the race for the 18th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.

Michael Webert is among the candidates that VFBF AgPAC has endorsed for House seats in its initial round of endorsements. Endorsements were made based on recommendations of local committees of farmers.

“Each of these candidates has demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs of agriculture and forestry or has a favorable voting record in support of agriculture and Farm Bureau issues,” said Wayne F. Pryor, Chairman of VFBF AgPAC and VFBF President.

Candidate Michael Webert issued the following statement:

Since the beginning of my campaign for Delegate, I have emphasized the importance of agriculture to our state and local economies and to the character of the 18th district. I often quote the welcome sign on Route 17 in Fauquier County that says, “Preserving Agriculture in a Business Friendly Environment.”

As someone who farms for a living and works closely with the Farm Bureau in my personal affairs, I cherish their role in supporting agriculture and forestry. As a board member of my local Farm Bureau, my fellow farmers are like family to me, and I look forward to serving them in a broader capacity from the House of Delegates.

In the House, I will work with our leaders to create more jobs, with a special emphasis on the 18th District. I believe the agricultural industry and community must be part of creating these new jobs for Culpeper, Fauquier, Rappahannock and Warren Counties.

The non-partisan VFBF AgPAC was created by Farm Bureau in 1999 and employs in-kind contributions and endorsements to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues. A full list of candidates endorsed by the committee can be viewed online at VaFarmBureau.org.

With nearly 150,000 members in 88 county Farm Bureaus, VFBF is Virginia’s largest farmers’ advocacy group.

I own Tilton Enterprises, a small excavating company in Marshall. I support Michael Webert for delegate in the redrawn 18th District.

I trust and support him as a friend, business associate and local leader. Michael Webert is the best candidate because he has deep roots in the 18th District, and, as a farmer, small businessman, fisherman and hunter, like many in the district, he shares our interests.

Representing us in the House of Delegates will require hard work, and Michael is no stranger to that. Read the rest of this entry »

Our country was born in a revolt against taxes and tyranny. I’m running for delegate because it’s time for Virginia to stand up against Obamacare and all of Washington’s unconstitutional mandates.

  • Farmer and small businessman
  • Stand for honesty, integrity, and transparency in government
  • Create jobs through lower taxes, less regulation, small business, and the free market – not more government.
  • Preserve the land and heritage that makes our small towns and communities great places to live.
  • Stand up for the right to bear arms and the Second Amendment. Protect our Virginia values and the Right-to-Life.
    Fight Obamacare and Washington mandates on Virginia.

As a Virginian who works hard everyday, I know taxes are too high. Spending is out of control. Washington’s mandates are crushing job growth and the economy. Obamacare will destroy healthcare as we know it. I’m running for delegate because I want to help Virginia stand up to a federal government that is out-of-control. Our constitution guarantees us the right to oppose these federal policies and to stop Obamacare in its tracks. That’s why I’m running for delegate.

“No one will outwork me, or fight harder for our conservative values”

Warrenton – Conservative Republican, farmer, and small businessman Michael Webert announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for Delegate in the 18th District on Tuesday. The district includes portions of the counties of Fauquier, Culpeper and Warren, and all of Rappahannock County. Webert said he will visit every county in the district, knock on doors, attend events and meet voters. “No one will outwork me, or fight harder for our conservative values,” declared Webert.

Michael is general manager of Locust Hill Farm, and founder and partner of Black Locust Livestock Marketing. He was awarded the John Marshall Soil and Conservation Award and is a Board Member of the Fauquier County Farm Bureau.

“Running a small business has taught me to balance budgets, even in tough times; to meet a payroll; to make decisions and set priorities – these are the things government must do, too. I am a proud conservative running as a Republican because we have the answers that will keep the American Dream alive for our children,” said Webert. Read the rest of this entry »
