OFB recognizes legislative leadership


Oklahoma

Oklahoma Farm Bureau honored six state senators and representatives with the Meritorious Service Award during the annual OFB Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City, Feb 20.

The Meritorious Service honor is awarded to state legislators who actively support rural and agricultural efforts and maintain a strong voting record in favor of Farm Bureau issues. Winners are nominated by county Farm Bureaus and evaluated on their ability to positively impact the rural community.

Those receiving the legislative award for 2012 were Reps. Larry Glenn, Skye McNiel, Wade Rousselot, and Mike Sanders and Sens. Brian Bingman and Susan Paddack.

"Oklahoma Farm Bureau appreciates the support these six individuals have shown for our policies and the legislation we endorse," said OFB Public Policy Director Kinsey Money. "Their cooperation allows Farm Bureau the opportunity to contribute to state legislation."

In addition to the Meritorious Service Awards presentation, OFB honored its retiring district directors Bob Drake and Ervin Mitchell. Conference guest speakers included law professor Drew Kershen, who led a discussion on Oklahoma water laws, and breakout sessions covered the topics of business succession planning and managing ag employment.

OFB concluded its conference Feb. 21, with county leader training and a legislative panel discussion featuring state Reps. Leslie Osborn and Wade Rousselot and state Sens. Clark Jolley and Sean Burrage.
