(WyFB / Pitchengine Communities)* (Cheyenne, Wyo.) - State Senator Eli Bebout of Riverton was awarded the 2015 Wyoming Farm Bureau Distinguished Service Award at the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation (WyFB) Legislative Meeting, according to a news release. Presented Feb. 25, the award is given to those who have gone above and beyond in their service to agriculture. “Legislator, exemplary businessman, veteran and philanthropist are just a few of the roles Bebout plays in the state of Wyoming,” said WyFB President Perry Livingston. “Sen. Bebout has made, and continues to make, great contributions to agriculture and our great state of Wyoming through his many years of service.” “I look back at my four years on the agriculture committee and the issues we worked on and the reason it works is because of people like you out there that work so hard and fight so hard for our state and your own families and come to us with issues of importance,” he told Farm Bureau members. “It has been a great pleasure to represent agriculture,” Bebout said. “If you are crazy enough to be in politics, then Wyoming is the place to do it and it is really all about public service.” “I listen to that list of things I am doing and wonder how I get it all done and the reason I get it done is because of the type of people that run and serve the state in our legislature and other elected offices." he said. Bebout challenged the audience to be involved in electing strong candidates for the legislature. “One of the concerns I have not only for our country but for our state is the rural area is getting smaller and smaller and the urban area is growing and growing,” He concluded. “We as the rural area need to recruit and elect good, strong candidates to come down to Cheyenne and represent you well.” *h/t Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation* *#county10 #news #bootstrapped*
