It is time for DMEA members-owners to elect members to fill three openings on the nine-person board. There are seven people running for those three seats.
They are all good people.
I am writing about one of them: Delta area resident Brent Hines. I served on the DMEA board with Brent for many years. He never rode the fence, and he always had well thought-out reasons for whatever position he took. His positions were based on what he saw as the right thing to do. He didn't go along to get along. I admired that, even when — as happened — he took positions opposite to mine.
There is another reason to vote for Brent. Brent is one of the one percent in this nation. He's part of the one percent that feeds the rest of us. He has survived in farming for the same reasons he's a good DMEA board member: he's thoughtful, he's thorough, he's careful and he watches the money. He is a good representative for DMEA member-owners.
At one time, the DMEA board was almost all farmers and ranchers. Today, Brent is the only one of the DMEA board who can bring the agricultural perspective to DMEA.
I urge you to cast your vote for incumbent Brent Hines for DMEA Director in District #2.
