Best Grassroots Effort – 2011
Since the Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association began a major border security effort during the 2010 legislative session, the Phoenix-based organization has logged thousands of travel miles, met with hundreds of officials, and even seen the benefit of an upswing in the organization’s membership.
Patrick Bray, executive vice president for the Cattle Growers’ Association, says it has been fulfilling work, and that being recognized as this year’s winner for Best Grassroots Effort is icing on the cake.
“It’s truly been a tremendous effort, indeed,” Bray says, reflecting on the work accomplished since the Restore Our Border (R.O.B.) plan was drafted before the 2010 legislative session.
