This July will mark four years that Hugoson has been in charge of the Minnesota Department o1" Ag- riculture. Those of us who have extensive dealings with the De- partment, and have had the oppor- tunity to work with Hugoson, know howwell-run that important agency of state government has been under Hugoson's leadership. In reappointing Hugoson, our new Governor said: "As a farmer, Gene understands how important agriculture is to conmmnities in Minnesota and to the economy of our eutire state With Gene's lead- ership, my Administration will serve Minnesota's farmers well." I got a really good idea of how committed Hugoson is to carrying the Department of Agriculture into the next century at the first of our Agri-Growth Council Legislative Alert breakfast meetings for this 1999 legislative session. It was a 7:00 a.m. meeting on a sub-zero morning and there was Hugoson. It was not a meeting he had to attend, but in keeping with his desire to stay in touch with all issues affect- ing agriculture in Minnesota, he was there. This was really not a surprise. It is the same way that Httgoson ap- proached issues during the ten years -- 1986 until 1995 -- thathc served in the Minnesota House of Repre- sentatives. During that time, he became a key part of the legislative leadership by staying on top of is- sues affecting agriculture, taxes and transportation.
