PORTLAND, Oregon, November 6, 2017 – The Trump Administration recently appointed John E. Huffman as the new State Director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development in Oregon. A former state legislator, Huffman will now help to implement USDA policies and Rural Development programs in the state to improve the economy and quality of life in rural America.
“It is an honor to be selected by the President to fill the extremely important role of State Director of USDA Rural Development in Oregon,” said Huffman. “I look forward to working with the President, Secretary of Agriculture, and Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development to increase rural prosperity and enhance customer service through innovation and partnerships in our state.”
Huffman has spent the past 10 years as an Oregon State Representative. His extensive experience identifying the needs of the rural communities he represented and helping to implement solutions will inform his new position with Rural Development. One of his first achievements in the state legislature was to help bring cellular infrastructure to a rural county in central Oregon. Huffman served on the Joint Committee on Ways and Means and numerous ways and means subcommittees over the years. He has also led wide-ranging efforts, from expanding affordable rural housing, to connecting rural businesses with the resources that will enable them to thrive, to supporting the installation of new sources of renewable energy.
Prior to serving in the state legislature, Huffman owned and managed a successful radio station in north central Oregon for 22 years. He is supported in his work by his wife, Korina.
As State Director, Huffman will use his leadership experience to oversee Rural Development programs in a customer-focused manner to improve prosperity in rural Oregon.
