|FSA to hold committee election|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
The Phillips County Farm Service Agency will be holding an election to elect a county committee person and alternates to a three-year term in Local Administrative Area 3, (LAA 3). Mark Gueck is the current committee person for that area and is ineligible to seek reelection.
The ballots will be mailed to eligible voters Nov. 5. The last day to return those ballots to the Farm Service Agency (FSA) Office by mail or in person is Dec. 6. The ballots will be counted Dec. 8 at 9 a.m. at the service center conference room.
To be eligible to run for election or vote in the election, farm owners, operators, tenants and sharecroppers of legal voting age that take part in any FSA program must reside in LAA 3. A map of LAA 3 has been posted in the FSA Office.
If one does not receive a ballot and think they might be eligible to vote, check with the Phillips County FSA.
