The election for a Farm Service Agency County Committee member in LAA-3 (the south and east part of the county) is complete. The seat up for election was held for the past nine years by Tim Ehman, who reached his term limit.
“Tim - with all of his experience and good judgment - will be missed,” said Tim Krebsbach, county executive director, in a press release.
Candidates for the office were Christine Keltner, Alan Mathiason and DeLynn Meidinger. Meidinger was elected as regular member, Mathiason as first alternate and Keltner as second alternate. The alternates fill in, in the event the elected member is unable to complete the term.
Producers willing to run in the election and serve on the committee are to be commended, Krebsbach said.
FSA County Committee members serve three-year terms.
