WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) this week met with Mark Borer of Leipsic, President of the Ohio Ethanol Producers Association. Brown met Borer during his weekly coffee with constituents.
“Mark is the leader of an important, growing industry in Ohio and its rural communities,” said Brown. “Biofuels help meet energy needs locally and statewide. With Mark at the helm of this important Ohio industry, I have no doubt it will continue to grow.”
Borer presented Brown with the “Fueling Growth” Award from Growth Energy – an organization that represents ethanol supporters and producers – for his support of clean ethanol use and renewable energy.
