(7/5/13) The Farm Service Agency is looking for candidates for the farmer-elected County Committee election set for this fall.
The Jackson County Farm Service Agency (FSA) will be hosting an annual open house on Wednesday, July 10, 2013, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. FSA county office staff will be sharing information on FSA's County Committee Election process and the importance of participating.
The Jackson County Committee is an important part of the delivery of USDA services to farmers, and FSA wants to include farmers in non-traditional operations and people whose livelihoods are made on farming.
The County Committee system needs everybody--from voters to active participants as candidates for committee membership. This year's election is for a committee person to represent the townships of Adams, Albion, Curran, Hixton, and Springfield.
The nomination deadline is August 1st, 2013.
