Joe is a co-founder of Family Farm Action Alliance. He focuses his work on a vision of an inclusive U.S. economy that works for all people, providing them an equitable opportunity to share in the prosperity they help build, rather than an economy that works for just a handful of individuals and multinational corporations.

Over the last three years, Joe has co-authored six policy briefing papers focused on the abusive power that monopolies have over our food and agriculture sectors. His work has been profiled by Huffington Post, Mother Jones, Politico, and The Nation. He has been cited by CNN, The New York Times, NPR, USA Today, the Washington Post, and many agriculture and regional outlets.

Joe has held key positions in both political and initiative petition campaigns. During the current election cycle, he has assisted presidential, U.S. Senate, and U.S. House of Representative candidates in developing their antitrust, agriculture, and food policy positions.

Joe holds degrees in agricultural economics and law from the University of Missouri. He served as a Missouri state legislator and Missouri’s lieutenant governor, and he is retired from the Army National Guard, where he served as a first sergeant in the Field Artillery. Joe and his brother, Steve, are Missouri family farmers.
