USDA LogoCALHOUN, Ky. (6/12/19) — McLean County Farm Agency Director Melanie Barnes announced that landowners, producers and those, who have interest in agricultural crops or operations, may nominate someone to seek the office of area committee person.

“Farm Service Agency area committees are responsible for the administration of Federal farm programs at the local level,” said Barnes. “Each county is divided into local administrative areas and elections are staggered each year.”

McLean County will be conducting an election in local administrative area No. 2, which includes the communities of Livermore, Nuckols, Buel, part of Calhoun and part of Glenville.

“Nominating petitions may be requested by visiting the FSA website, or the FSA office. Nominating petitions must be returned or post marked before the close of business Aug. 1,” Barnes said.

Farm Service Agency area committees meet each month to conduct business and hear producer appeals.

Committee elections are open to all eligible persons without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, handicap, sex, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status, said Barnes.

The Farm Service Agency encourages minority and female participation in FSA committee elections.
