Val Dolcini

Val Dolcini has been named as the new administrator of the USDA’s Farm Service Agency. He will start Monday, Sept. 8.

Dolcini, who most recently oversaw the FSA’s work in California as state executive director, will take the place of FSA Administrator Juan Garcia, who said in August that he planned to retire.

A fifth-generation Californian, Dolcini has been in this position before, although just temporarily; he was acting FSA administrator in 2011 until Garcia was appointed.

As FSA administrator, Dolcini will be in charge of an agency that handles commodity programs, crop insurance, emergency assistance, and more for farmers and ranchers. He has a bachelor’s in history from San Francisco State University and a law degree from Golden Gate University School of Law.
