"I have had the pleasure of working with Ian for a number of years in his role with the Congressman, and I have always found him to be an articulate and vocal advocate for California agriculture,” shared CFFA President Barry Bedwell. “We believe he is a natural fit along with our current staff to continue to enthusiastically represent our members."

"We are very pleased that Ian has agreed to become part of the team at CFFA,” agreed Family Tree Farms' David Jackson, Chairman of the CFFA. “His background and education, as well as working agricultural issues for Congressman Costa, should translate into real value for our membership."

Before signing up with the CFFA, LeMay served as District Director for Congressman Jim Costa, working on a variety of constituent and agricultural issues, including water supply and availability.

He received his education at Cal Poly where he studied agricultural business with a concentration in marketing. He lives in Fresno, California with his wife, Molly, and their newborn baby.
