House Speaker Boehner To Host Ohio Farm Forum

The speaker of the U.S. House plans to hear from farmers back home.

Rep. John Boehner will host his annual 8th House district farm forum Saturday in the western Ohio city of Troy. Boehner’s office says the keynote speaker will be Steve Phipps, chairman of Dayton-based Woolpert. The design and geospatial company has been developing its unmanned aerial system strategy, including uses for precision agriculture.

The 8th House district stretches into northwest Ohio from Boehner’s home area in the Cincinnati suburb of West Chester in southwest Ohio. His office says it includes more than 6,000 farms.

Boehner was first elected to Congress in 1990.
