Joe Spalding of Marion County and Bernie Cave of Taylor County knew local tobacco farmers were not happy with Philip Morris' 2008 contract proposal.
So, they called a meeting, and about 100 farmers from Adair, Anderson, Casey, Green, Marion, Nelson, Scott, Shelby, Taylor and Washington counties gathered Wednesday, Dec. 12 in the Floral Hall at the Marion County Fairgrounds.
"My main objective is to have a voice with the respective companies we deal with," Spalding said.
He encouraged everyone at the meeting to speak up.
