County committee nomination deadline nears


Fri, Jul 20th, 2012
Posted in All Agriculture

Farmers, ranchers and other agricultural producers may begin nominating eligible candidates to serve on local Farm Service Agency county committees.

“County committees play a vital role in the administration of federal farm programs and the positive effect they have on rural communities,” said Martin.

FSA county committees make decisions on commodity price support loans, conservation programs, disaster programs, employing county executive directors and other significant agricultural issues.

To hold office as a county committee member, a person must participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA, be eligible to vote in a county committee election and reside in the local administrative area in which the person is a candidate. A complete list of eligibility requirements is posted online at: http://www.fsa.usda.gov/Internet/FSA_File/ccoeligib_10.pdf

Individuals may nominate themselves or others as candidates. Additionally, organizations representing minorities and women may nominate candidates.

All nominees must sign nomination form FSA-669A, which includes a statement that the nominee agrees to serve if elected. Form FSA-669A is available at USDA Service Centers and online at: http://www.fsa.usda.gov/elections. All nomination forms for the 2012 election must be postmarked or received in the local USDA Service Center by close of business on Aug. 1, 2012.

For more information about FSA county committees, visit your local USDA Service Center or online at: http://www.fsa.usda.gov/mn/. Then select the County Committee Election Page.
