Graves and McDaniel Join Committee
Published Dec. 21, 2011 @ midnight
Garza-Borden County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Victor Ashley, announced that county committee elections are over, the ballots are counted and the results are in.
Ronnie Graves of Post was elected to represent LAA 1 and Joy McDaniel of Southland will serve as the first alternate.
Elected county committee members serve a three-year term and are responsible for making decisions on FSA 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 programs themselves and have a direct connection to farmers and ranchers in the community,” said Ashley. "All recently elected county committee members and alternates will take office on January 1, 2012, and join the existing committee," he added.
