Incumbent Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan Asks for Right to Serve Another Two Years as the Group's President

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 20:25:50 CST

Incumbent Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan Asks for Right to Serve Another Two Years as the Group's President Over the last few days, there have been two challengers that have stepped forward to run for the job of President of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau. Jimmy Wayne Kinder and Rodd Moesel are opposing incumbent Tom Buchanan for the position. We have posted their statements that have been sent to delegates for the upcoming Oklahoma Farm Bureau convention that starts on Friday at the Embassy Suites in Norman.

As a result, it is appropriate that the Oklahoma Farm Report reached out to Tom Buchanan and asked him for a statement that he would like to share with delegates and others who have interest in the general farm organization's future.

Here is President Tom Buchanan's comments that he provided the Oklahoma Farm Report earlier on Wednesday:


"Oklahoma Farm Bureau is celebrating it's 75 anniversary a great milestone in itself. Oklahoma Farm Bureau can count many successes on behalf of Oklahoma Agriculture and rural Oklahoma over the past 75 years.

"I am very proud to be a member of Oklahoma Farm Bureau and greatly honored to have been given the opportunity to be the president as this milestone was reached by our organization.

"The challenges facing the members of Oklahoma Farm Bureau today are many, running from the erosion of private property rights, increased taxation, the changing demographics of Oklahoma, to the overburden some regulatory environment. I look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with the members of Oklahoma Farm Bureau as we face and overcome these and other challenges.

"I sincerely ask the membership of Oklahoma Farm Bureau for their vote of confidence as their president. My commitment to work with them as we address future challenges is as strong as ever. As the president of Oklahoma Farm Bureau I pledge to work with members as we set the course for the next 75 years, and share in the victories and successes that will be in our future."


Delegates to the 76th Annual Meeting of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau will be choosing a President for a two year term on Saturday afternoon, November 11th at the Embassy Suites in Norman.
