Obama Administration Filling State Posts

State FSA and Rural Development heads being named.

The Obama Administration has started naming State Directors for Rural Development and State Executive Directors for the Farm Service Agency. So far the Administration has announced 18 FSA Executives and 16 Rural Development Directors.


"These individuals will be important advocates on behalf of rural communities in states throughout the country and help administer the valuable programs and services provided by the USDA that can enhance their economic success," said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. "Having a solid understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing our rural communities, they will help build on the Obama Administration's efforts to rebuild and revitalize rural America."
