Chorney seeking re-election at KAP

Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP’s) president Doug Chorney is running for president again in 2013.

In an interview following KAP’s General Council meeting Oct. 25, Chorney, an East Selkirk-area farmer first elected president in 2011 and then in 2012, said he would let his name stand.

Chorney served as one of KAP’s two vice-presidents in 2010.

No others have formally been nominated for the post. The deadline is early December.

KAP’s annual meeting is Jan. 23 to 25 at the Winnipeg Delta.

Two vice-presidential nominations will be taken Jan. 24 during KAP’s annual meeting. Vice-president Dan Mazier, a grain and livestock farmer from Justice, said he will see re-election. However, Neepawa farmer Weldon Newton said he is stepping down due to changes in his farming operation.

The Neepawa-area farmer has been involved with KAP for years starting as the director for District 9 in 1997. The following year he was elected second vice-president. Newton served as first vice-president in 1999, 2000 and 2001 and president in 2002 and 2003.
