OFB leaders appointed to governor’s water policy advisory council

Davis —  

Gov. Mary Fallin appointed two Oklahoma Farm Bureau leaders to her Water Policy for 2060 Advisory Council. 

Tom Buchanan of Altus and Bob Drake of Davis were selected to fill new positions on the advisory board. 

“We are happy to see rural Oklahoma and rural water interests so well represented on the governor’s advisory council,” said Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Mike Spradling. “Tom and Bob represent Oklahoma agriculture in the many rolls they fill in their communities and in our state, and we know they will continue to speak for rural Oklahoma on the governor’s water policy council.” 

Drake is president of Murray County Farm Bureau and has previously served on the OFB state board. He farms and ranches in southern Oklahoma, and he is a member of the Oklahoma Water Resources Board. Drake also served on the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality Board.

Buchanan represents OFB’s second district on the OFB state board of directors. He farms in southwest Oklahoma and manages the Lugert-Altus Irrigation District.
