MONTEREY, Calif. — Farm Bureau members attending a state convention here have unanimously re-elected Paul Wenger to his third two-year term as the statewide organization’s president.

Wenger, who took the California Farm Bureau Federation’s reins in December 2009, told delegates Dec. 11 he intends to “double down” in his efforts to “support, protect and promote this great industry and all of you.”

Wenger, a walnut and almond grower from Modesto, has held a statewide office since 1997 and is the CFBF’s 15th president. During his tenure, he has sought to boost political fundraising to increase agriculture’s clout in Sacramento.

He is joined by First Vice President Kenny Watkins and Second Vice President Jamie Johanson, who were also re-elected to third terms.
