Mason Mungle Follows in the Footsteps of his Dad as He Wins AFR Board Seat at Their Annual Meeting At the 2017 American Farmers and Ranchers Convention in Norman on Saturday, election results were announced for five board seats and one state office. Paul Jackson had no opposition for his reelection to be the State Secretary of the organization, while Kyndell Nichols of Ringwood drew no opposition and was declared elected to be the Board Member for the Northwest Agent Director Seat for District One.


There were four contested races for Board Seats. Incumbents Terry Peach of Mooreland and Bob Holley of Antlers will return to the Board of Directors for another term- Peach winning with 52% of the vote over Eric Bilderback for the Northwest Independent Director- District One while Holley also garnered 52% of the vote in defeating David Christ and Larry Byrd Austin for the District 4 Independent Director position.


Winning election to the board for the first time is Garnett Barnett of Tahlequah- winning his race over John Ogden for the Northeast District 3 Agent Director while a new position that was created a year ago as AFR expanded their board saw Mason Mungle face off against Harvey Schroeder for the At Large Board of Director's seat. Mungle won the seat with almost 57% of the vote.


After the election, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with Mungle about his long standing involvment with American Farmers and Ranchers/Oklahoma Farmers Union. His dad, Jean Mungle, was a long time Director for OFU and a dairy farmer from Atoka- and Mason was the lobbyist for OFU for a decade at the Oklahoma State Capitol before becoming President of Farmers Royalty Company. Before his service to OFU as their Director of Government Relations- he served as the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission.
