Alabama Farmers Federation to Pick New President


By CBS 8 News

Three people are vying to replace Jerry Newby as president of the Alabama Farmers Federation.


The Tuscaloosa News reports that state Rep. Richard Lindsey of Centre; Jimmy Parnell of Maplesville; and Ricky Wiggins of Covington County are candidates in the election.


The vote will be held Monday during the group's annual meeting in Montgomery.


The 65-year-old Newby announced earlier this year he wouldn't seek re-election. He served seven two-year terms.


The organization has about 380,000 members in the state. The presidential vote will be conducted at a closed session.
