Turtle Lake, North Dakota native Roger Johnson is stepping down as the National Farmers Union President. Since 2009, Johnson served in the role. He tells the Red River Farm Network he’s most proud of maintaining the legacy of standing up for family farmers. “Farmers Union takes a different approach than other ag groups.” There are three individuals running for the position at the National Farmers Union Convention. That includes Senior Vice President of Public Policy and Communications Rob Larew, Kansas Farmers Union President Donn Teske and Pennsylvania Farmers Union Board Member Mike Eby. Johnson has advice for the next NFU President. “Simply understand that policy book and make sure you stay true to the policy wishes and demands to the membership.” Johnson hasn’t ruled out continuing to work in the agriculture industry in his retirement, saying he’s always willing to help those in need.
