Draft Jim Riddle to the USDA
Our friends at Equal Exchange have direct access to an advisor for the Obama USDA transition team. We will be submitting your names (but keeping your contact information private) to their combined petition to draft Jim Riddle to the position of heading the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service, which is the department that oversees organic standards in the U.S. Our hope is to get this petition in front of the team soon, so that Jim Riddle, a longtime advocate for sustainable and organic farming, will be considered for the post. The OCA can imagine no better leader of the USDA National Organic Program.
