Delta County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) county executive director Alan Bull, announced that county committee elections are over, the ballots are counted and the results are in.
Rebecca "Becky" Shea of Delta was elected to represent LAA #1 (California Mesa, Ash Mesa, Peach Valley, Gunnison Valley).
Reuben Leon of Delta will serve as the first alternate, and Daniel Long of Cory will serve as the second alternate.
Shea was currently serving as the female advisor on the committee at the time of the election. The currently serving COC members are Chann Fogg, LAA #2, (Surface Creek Valley, Redlands and Rogers Mesas) and Monty Todd, LAA#3, (Hotchkiss, Paonia, Crawford and Fruitland Mesa).
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 Bull. "All recently elected county committee members and alternates took office on Jan. 1, and join the existing committee," he said.
