Oklahoma Farm Bureau Hires Vice President of Public Policy
Oklahoma Farm Bureau announced today the hiring of John Collison as its new vice president of public policy.

“John comes to us with a wealth of political and agricultural policy knowledge and experience that is acknowledged at both the state and federal level,” said Monica Wilke, OFB Executive Director. “He has a vision for our legislative voice that will inspire and excite our members as we move into the future.”

Collison is the former state director for U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe, where he spent the last thirteen years covering the state of Oklahoma representing and advising the Senator. Collison will be joining the public policy department prior to the upcoming legislative session.

“I look forward to continuing Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s position as the leading and most powerful voice in Oklahoma for agriculture,” Collison said. “I know firsthand what it takes to move our issues forward on both a state and federal level. I am ready and excited to serve the hundreds of Oklahoma farmers and ranchers who are affected by decisions from our legislative bodies.

Collison is a graduate of Oklahoma State University with a degree in agricultural business and has spent many years working with the Oklahoma farmers and ranchers on behalf of Sen. Inhofe.

Oklahoma Farm Bureau is the leading agricultural organization in the state of Oklahoma. Its membership is composed of farming and ranching families across the state.

“We are excited to have such an experienced political strategist join us at Farm Bureau,” said OFB President Mike Spradling. “John is a true leader and will lead us into the future with regard to the important legislative challenges we face in Oklahoma agriculture.”
