McPherson County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Michael Westerman, announced that county committee elections are over, the ballots are counted and the results are in…

 

Dixie Mattas of Lindsborg was elected to represent LAA 2 and Daril Alexander of McPherson 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 Michael Westerman. "All recently elected county committee members and alternates will take office on January 1, 2012, and join the existing committee," he said.
