Mary Draves brings business, ag experience to bid for Michigan’s 8th Congressional District seat

Former Dow Chemical Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer Mary Draves has been named a “Friend of Agriculture” by Michigan Farm Bureau’s AgriPac, which is endorsing her candidacy for Michigan’s 8th Congressional district.
