The Macon/Trousdale County Farm Service Agency just counted the ballots received to elect members to the county committee.
Jason Hesson was elected to represent LAA 1 and Sandy Knight will serve as the first alternate.
Mary Grace Gregory was elected to represent LAA 4 and James W Wright will service as the first alternate.
Anglia L Harper was elected to represent LAA 5.
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 comprised of local producers who participate in FSA programs themselves and have a direct connection to farmers in the community. All recently elected county committee members took office on February 18, 2014, and join the existing committee.
