The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency seeks farmers and ranchers to serve on the local F-S-A county committee. This is F-S-A administrator Richard Fordyce letting you know that now is the time to submit your nomination for the 2020 county committee election.
From June 15 through August 1, you can nominate yourself or a candidate of your choice for your local F-S-A county committee. Almost anyone of legal voting age participating or cooperating in F-S-A’s programs can be nominated.
There’s an increasing need for representation from underserved producers, so I especially encourage beginning, women and other minority farmers and ranchers to get involved.
Download a nomination form today at F-S-A dot u-s-d-a dot g-o-v forward-slash elections (fsa.usda.gov/elections) or request one from your local office. Remember, forms must be postmarked or delivered back to the county office by the August 1 deadline. Voting takes place this fall.
Make a difference in your county and lead your F-S-A.
