FSA announces county election winners
Published 9:00 am Thursday, February 9, 2017
The Farm Service Agency (FSA) county committee elections are over, the ballots are counted and the results are in.
Harold Upton, of Waynesburg, was elected to represent LAA 3 and Wayne Brown, of Crab Orchard, 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 comprised of local producers who participate in FSA programs themselves and have a direct connection to farmers and ranchers in the community. All recently elected county committee members and alternates took office in January 2017, and joined the existing committee.
