WASHINGTON, N.C. — The local Farm Service Agency is preparing for our 2017 County Office Committee (COC) Elections. The County Committee serves as a direct link between your agricultural community and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). All producers are encouraged to participate in these elections. I have enclosed the COC Elections Fact Sheet, a Nomination Form and the COC Elections Poster.
In 2017, the following Local Administrative Area (LAA) is up for election:
Local Administrative Area 1, Beaufort County, covers Bath, Pantego, and Belhaven.
The nomination period for County Committee Elections began June 15, 2017 and runs through August 1, 2017. Nomination forms are available at the local FSA office and online at www.fsa.usda.
I hope that you will be able to share this information with your organization and your contacts. I would welcome the opportunity to come and meet with your group. Please let me know if I can be of assistance.
Thank you for supporting our agricultural community.
