Farm Bureau honors Hamilton with Friend of Agriculture Award

Jackson – The Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation presented its Friend of Agriculture Award to Representative Frank Hamilton of Hurley. He represents House District 109 comprised of Jackson and George.

“Representative Hamilton has worked hard with Farm Bureau to get stronger private property rights laws in force,” said Farm Bureau President Randy Knight. “His work in this area helped Farm Bureau pass the Eminent Domain Reform Initiative.”

“I have a personal interest in it because I own some prime property,” said Representative Hamilton. “I pay my taxes on it and it would just tear me up for the government to come take it and give it to a private business. I’m very adamantly opposed to government intervention on private, personally owned property.”

Representative Hamilton is a private pilot and is affiliated with the East Central Civic Association and the Mississippi Hunting Dog Association. He is a former Supervisor for Jackson County.
