The Wilson County U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Executive Director Stephen Svacina announced that county committee election nominations will begin Wednesday, June 15. Farmers, ranchers, and landowners are encouraged to nominate farmer and rancher candidates to serve on their local Farm Service Agency county committee by the Monday, Aug. 1, deadline.

Elected county committee members serve a three-year term and are responsible for making decisions on Farm Service Agency disaster, conservation, commodity, and price support programs, as well as other important federal farm program issues.

“County committee members are a valuable asset because they are local producers who participate in FSA [Farm Service Agency] programs themselves and have a direct connection to farmers and ranchers in the community,” Svacina said.

Producers may nominate themselves or others as candidates. Organizations that represent minority and women farmers and ranchers may also nominate candidates. Nominees must participate in a program administered by the Farm Service Agency, be eligible to vote in a county committee election, and reside in the local administrative area (LAA) in which the person is a candidate. To become a nominee, eligible individuals must sign form FSA-669A. The form and more information about county committee elections are available online at www.fsa.usda.gov/elections.

“It is important that the county committee reflects the demographics and agricultural interests of the community these individuals represent,” Svacina said. “I strongly encourage all producers, including women, minority, and beginning farmers and ranchers, to participate in the nomination and election process,” he said.

County committees are comprised of three to five members elected by local producers. All newly elected county committee members and alternates will take office Monday, Jan. 2, 2012.

Nomination forms must be postmarked or received in the local U.S. Department of Agriculture Service Center by close of business on Aug. 1.

For more information about county committees, call the Wilson County Farm Service Agency office at 830-393-3411 or visit www.fsa.usda.gov.
