This will be Peterson's 3rd term as NFU secretary.
"It is an honor to be re-elected by my peers as secretary of the National Farmers Union Board of Directors," said Peterson. "I look forward to serving in this capacity for the next couple years and to help NFU fight for prosperity for rural America."
