California Cut Flower Commission:
"US (CA): "Flower champion" Farr announces retirement"
Farr's legacy as a legislator includes the formation of the California Cut Flower Commission. During his tenure as a member of the California State Assembly, Farr was a key sponsor and helped pass AB 2575 which was later signed into law by Gov. George Deukmejian in 1990.
"Always positive, always encouraging, we appreciate that Congressman Farr's support for our California flower farmers has been a priority throughout his entire political career," described CCFC CEO & Ambassador Kasey Cronquist. "It was his leadership that helped to form the California Cut Flower Commission in 1990 and the Congressional Cut Flower Caucus in 2014. He has been a true champion for California's flower farmers."

Farr explained his decision to retire saying: "For years, my wife, Shary, has asked me to come home. She's right. It's time. It's time to come home and spend time with her and with my daughter, Jessica, and my grandkids, Ella and Zach. Time marches on and I am getting older; I want to spend more time with them."

The 20th district overlaps with the districts of state Sen. Bill Monning, Assemblyman Mark Stone and Assemblyman Luis Alejo who is termed out and planning to run for the Monterey County Board of Supervisors in 2016.
Other names in the mix to succeed Farr are Anna Caballero, a former Democratic assemblywoman; Jerry Panetta, Monterey County prosecutor and son of political icon Leon Panetta; and Casey Lucius who has already announced her candidacy.
