Jimmy Kinder Announces Run for President of Oklahoma Farm Bureau

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 07:30:22 CDT

Jimmy Kinder Announces Run for President of Oklahoma Farm Bureau It was expected that current Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan would run for reelection for that position at their annual meeting later this month at the organization's 75th Annual Meeting in Norman.


Now, it appears the Vice President will challenge Buchanan for the top job- Jimmy Wayne Kinder of Walters, currently the Vice President and District 4 Director, has sent a letter to Farm Bureau leaders across the state announcing his intention to run for the job of President. You can see the letter by clicking on the PDF link at the bottom of this story.


Kinder says "I am announcing my candidacy to be elected as your Oklahoma Farm Bureau President.      
      
       
"After talking to Margaret Ann, my family, and numerous conversations with God, I am applying for the job. I believe OKFB members deserve a choice. I hope you would consider me for that job.
           

"The last 6 years have been very eventful as the District 4 director. Thank you to all who have supported me in the past and now I ask for your support as a candidate to become OKFB President.
        
     
"For those of you who may not know me, I am a 4th generation full-time farmer and rancher from Cotton County and a 3rd generation OKFB member. We raise mostly wheat and cattle. My grandfather and father were active on our local county board and were involved in OKFB state leadership activities too. My involvement in Farm Bureau began as a YF&R member, next as a county board member, and later county president. I know the frustrations of local boards and understand d the needs of county members. With your help, I would transition OKFB, into an organization that is more responsive to county leaders and their local efforts. The greatest benefit to rural Oklahoma is giving local members the knowledge and support they need to make things happen. We need local involvement for OKFB to be effective in State and National issues."


Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays spoke with Kinder this morning- he wants Farm Bureau delegates to have a choice on who their President will be for the next 2 years- he added that he had talked with Tom Buchanan about it and "we're good to go."


The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Convention happens November 10-12 at the Embassy Suites in Norman. Click here for a release on the meeting and tenative agenda.
