Southwestern Oklahoma farmer Jimmy Wayne Kinder has been appointed by Gov. Mary Fallin to serve a five-year term on the Environmental Quality Board of Directors. Kinder currently serves on the OFB Board of Directors representing Farm Bureau members in OFB District 4 comprised of nine counties in southern Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Legislature established the Environmental Quality Board comprised of Oklahoma citizens to provide guidance to the Department of Environmental Quality. Board members have a variety of backgrounds in manufacturing, hazardous waste management, solid waste management, petroleum industry, agriculture, recreation, conservation, rural water systems, and statewide environmental groups. Responsibilities of the board are the appointment of the DEQ's Executive Director and the adoption of rules that determine operation of the Department.
Jimmy Wayne and his wife, Margaret Ann, operate a diversified family farm near Walters. Commodities produced on the Kinder farm include wheat, canola, grain sorghum, sesame and beef cattle.
