Nebraska Native Kristi Boswell headed to USDA

The American Farm Bureau Federations immigration and labor expert is heading to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. AFBFs director of congressional relations for labor and immigration, Kristi Boswell, will serve as a senior adviser to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue.

Boswell starts next month at USDA and Politico reports she will be working on labor and immigration issues. Boswell is a registered lobbyist and under Trump administration rules, may require a waiver to work on any issues that she previously lobbied on.

Boswell grew up on a farm in southeastern Nebraska where her family raised corn and soybeans, according to AFBF.

Before joining USDA and AFBF, Boswell practiced corporate defense litigation in Nebraska and worked as a political aide for a Nebraska state senator.
