Perdue Announces Farm Service Agency State Committee Appointees
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today announced a slate of Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Committee Appointees. State committees are selected by the Secretary, serve at the pleasure of the Secretary, and are responsible for carrying out FSA’s farm programs within delegated authorities.
“The State Committees will help to ensure USDA is providing our farmers, ranchers, foresters, and agricultural producers with the best customer service,” Secretary Perdue said. “They serve as a liaison between USDA and the producers in each state across the nation by keeping them informed and hearing their appeals and complaints. The committees are made up mostly of active farmers and ranchers, representing their peers and ensuring USDA’s programs are supporting the American harvest.”
Each state committee has five members, one chairperson and four members. The individuals appointed to serve on this committee in Maine include:
- Committee Chair Sue McCrum – Belfast
- Gregg Garrison – Blaine
- Heath Miller – Newburgh
- Nancy Ricker – Turner
- David Tuttle – North Berwick
State committees are appointed for a one year term which began on January 1, 2018. Each state committee has five members, one chairperson and four members. Committee lists can be found online. States that are not listed here or that have incomplete lists will be announced at a later date.
