For much of his life, John Chandler has been at the center of agriculture, currently overseeing the operations of a 127-year-old family farm as a fourth-generation farmer. From DC’s Capitol Hill to congressional campaigns in California’s 21st District, Chandler has also followed his passion for public policy and politics. At the California State Senate Committee on Agriculture, Chandler contributed to the shaping of agricultural legislation in California as Principle Consultant, and his work as a field representative at the California Association of Water Agencies (ACWA) led to the establishment of the ACWA Outreach Award Program, raising local water agency involvement in the California legislature. Chandler will use his fellowship to Australia and Chile to explore how water and agricultural labor shortages are addressed to begin an exchange of ideas and solutions to confront critical water and labor challenges around the world.
