Nominate someone for farm program election

Daily Staff Writer

The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) will begin to accept nominations for this year’s county committee election from now through August 1, 2007. This year’s election will be held in Local Administrative Area (LLA) 5, which is the area that includes Grand and Summit counties. If you know of someone who either lives or has ranch/farm headquarters in this area and who would be interested in getting involved in the county committee process, now is your chance to nominate that person. Nomination forms are available in the county office or can be found on the web at under the News & Events tab. Contact the FSA county office at (970) 879-3225, ext. 2, for additional information regarding the county committee. Please get involved in this important part of the FSA administrative process and nominate your favorite candidate for the 2007 County Committee Election. The County Committee system is unique within the U.S. government and it ensures that local input can be implemented in the administration of farm programs. It is important for the COC to fairly represent all of the agricultural producers in the area. Balloting for the 2007 election begins Nov. 2, 2007, and ends Dec. 3, 2007. If you know of an agricultural producer who does not receive a ballot, please let us know so we can update our name and address database.
