The Delmarva Chicken Association presented its Medal of Achievement award to Delaware Sen. Dave Wilson, R-Bridgeville, for his work and advocacy which are crucial to the success of the area’s chicken community.
Wilson is a state senator who represents Delaware’s 18th Senate District and previously served in the Legislature as a state representative. He has been an active member of both the House and Senate agricultural committees, as well as the Senate environmental and natural resources committee, energy committee and veterans affairs committee.
“Sen. Wilson is a strong ‘agvocate’ in Delaware’s Legislative Hall,” said Holly Porter, DCA’s executive director. “He grew up on a family grain farm, he is a farmer still, and we appreciate his advocacy on behalf of the entire chicken community that is so important to Delaware’s economy and culture.”
