U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will be traveling to Charlotte in Eaton County next week as part of an Obama administration tour of rural areas to showcase what’s been done with federal stimulus dollars from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to benefit local communities through agricultural development.

U.S. Rep. Mark Schauer, who represents Eaton County and much of south central Michigan, and U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow will host Vilsack, a former Iowa governor, at the Monday afternoon event at Country Mill Farm, which will include a forum for local residents to discuss federal agricultural policy.

President Obama will be in Warren at Macomb County Community College on Tuesday for a town hall meeting.
