PEF seeks administrator

The Plymouth Education Foundation is seeking an executive administrator to guide its efforts to support the Plymouth School District.

This new part-time position has been created as the foundation evolves from an organization primarily responsible for managing the investment of donations into a more active entity with an increased level of fundraising.

The foundation was established in 1988, when the district received a $150,000 gift. The organization has since grown to oversee about $900,000 in assets.

The administrator, who is expected to work about 10 hours per week, will be responsible for ensuring a continuity of purpose, message and organized execution of affairs on behalf of the Plymouth School District and its community, alumni and donors. He or she will report to the foundation board of directors.

Candidates should have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent, excellent communications skills, computer skills and reasoning ability.

For a detailed position description and list of responsibilities, contact Dr. Clark Reinke at creinke@plymouth.k12.wi.us. Deadline for applications is June 21.

FSA nominations begin

USDA’s Sheboygan County Farm Service Agency (FSA) has announced that FSA county committee farmer candidate nominations begin June 15. The nomination period continues through Aug. 1, with elections taking place this fall.

“I encourage all eligible farmers to participate in this year’s county committee elections by nominating candidates by the Aug. 1 deadline,” Brad Pfaff, Wisconsin state executive director, said in a press release announcing the nomination period. “County committees are a vital link between the farm community and the U.S. Department of Agriculture and provide an opportunity to farmers for their opinions and ideas to be heard. We have been seeing an increase in the number of nominations of women and minority candidates and I hope that trend continues.”

To be eligible to serve on an FSA county committee, a person must participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA, be eligible to vote in a county committee election and reside in the township of Greenbush, Mitchell, Rhine, Russell, or Scott.

Farmers may nominate themselves or others, and organizations representing minorities and women also may nominate candidates. To become a candidate, an eligible individual must sign the nomination form, FSA-669A. The form and other information about FSA county committee elections are available online at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/elections.

They must be returned to the Sheboygan County USDA Service Center by close of business on Aug. 1. Elections will take place this fall.

While FSA county committees do not approve or deny farm ownership or operating loans, they make decisions on disaster and conservation programs, emergency programs, commodity price support loan programs and other agricultural issues. Members serve three-year terms. Nationwide, there are about 7,800 farmers and ranchers serving on FSA county committees.

FSA will mail ballots to eligible voters beginning Nov. 4. The voted ballots are due back to the Sheboygan County FSA Office either via mail or in person by Dec. 2. Newly elected committee members and alternates take office on Jan. 1, 2014
