Olathe farmer named president of Colorado Corn Administrative Committee

Staff report

The Greeley-based organization Colorado Corn announced this week the election of Doug Wilson as president of the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee.

This election follows the death last month of Charlie Bartlett, the committee's former president.

"We lost an incredible leader with Charlie's passing, but we will certainly make it a priority to carry forward with his innovative and forward-thinking spirit as we address the challenges facing agriculture, and as we make investments on behalf of Colorado's corn farmers," Wilson said in a news release from Colorado Corn.

Wilson, who farms near Olathe, served as the committee's vice president before the vote. Longmont-area farmer Mike Lefever will step into the vice president role. The board members of the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee elected both unanimously.
