Brandi Montgomery of Washington Court House is serving on Ohio Farm Bureau’s 2017 policy development committee. As part of Farm Bureau’s grassroots policy development program, the committee collects and organizes recommendations submitted by county Farm Bureaus and Issue Advisory Teams.
The committee also finalizes the policy suggestions that will be voted on by delegates at the Ohio Farm Bureau annual meeting in December.
During its initial session the committee heard from subject experts, government leaders and Farm Bureau staff on topics such as water quality, livestock siting regulations, the opioid epidemic, energy, the federal farm bill, property rights and school funding. Committee members also visited with representatives of Central State University, Ohio State University Extension and the Ohio Fair Managers Association.
The policy committee consists of 11 members from Ohio Farm Bureau’s board of trustees and 10 representatives of county Farm Bureaus.
Montgomery represents Fayette County on the committee.
