Paul Mailander was recently appointed to the Farm Service Agency Executive Committee for Colorado. U.S. Senator Mark Udall announced the appointment of five new members on Wednesday, Jan. 20.
The committee helps oversee FSA programs in the state. Senator Udall recommended the five new members, who were officially selected by President Barack Obama’s Administration on Friday.
“Farming and ranching are a critical part of Colorado’s economy and heritage, and I want to congratulate the new members of the State Executive Committee,” Senator Udall said. “The committee members are beginning their service at a difficult time for our agricultural community, but I can’t think of a group better suited for the job. I know their deep knowledge of farming and ranching in Colorado will serve them well, and I look forward to working together to keep our agricultural community strong and healthy.”
Mailander has managed his own farm since 1976. He has served on several committees and boards, including the First National Bank Holding Committee Board of Directors. Mailander has an undergraduate degree in accounting from Regis University.
Along with Mailander, the other new FSA State Executive Committee members for Colorado are James H. Hume, Walsh; William W. Warren, Keenesburg; Marsha Daughenbaugh, Steamboat Springs; and Dr. Armando Valdez, Capulin.
