Francis Thicke is seeking to unseat current Republican Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey, and has written a book to explain his vision for farmers. Thicke told KCII “A New Vision For Iowa Agriculture and Food” explains current agriculture in the state, provides homegrown alternatives for self sufficient energy, and also discusses growing the food we eat right here in Iowa.  Thicke says the secretary of agriculture should provide a vision for where agriculture should go in the future, something he says current Ag Secretary Bill Northey doesn’t give farmers.  For more information on Thicke’s new book, visit
