County committee elections are over, the ballots are counted and the results are in, according to the USDA Farm Service Agency.
Lance Crowley of 3058 Hatcher Road, Maben, was re-elected to represent LAA # 1.
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 comprise 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 took office on Feb. 18, and join the existing committee.
