KUHN North America’s Service and Distribution Facility recently had the honor of hosting U.S. Representative Anthony Brindisi (D-N.Y.). Here in Vernon, we are proud of the work we do to serve and provide for our region’s agriculture and industrial equipment dealers. Having our congressman allowed us to showcase the work we are doing, but it also showed our employees the importance of civic engagement.
Through I Make America, KUHN and equipment manufacturing employees across the United States are able to engage with their elected officials. Events like the one we hosted in our Vernon facility, we’re given the opportunity to have our representatives and senators visit and learn about the work we are doing to contribute to our community and local economy. But it goes beyond these visits. From letters and emails, to tweets and Facebook comments, there are many ways we can share our thoughts with our elected officials. And I Make America is providing us with the tools, resources, and information to better inform us about important issues that impact equipment manufacturing employees like me.
With 2020 right around the corner, it’s a big election year. Equipment manufacturing employees have the power to make a difference to elect leaders who will vote policies that will benefit our industry. All we have to do is use that power.
