Clint Koble (ko-blee)
Clint was born in 1950 and raised on a family farm in north-central North Dakota. He attended and received B.A. Degrees in Political Science and History.
Clint moved his family to Nevada in 1985 when he was in the health club business and eventually, he went into the tourism industry.
In 2006, Clint switched careers and got into rural development by becoming the Executive Director of the Nevada Rural Development Council. In that capacity, Clint facilitated Community Assessments throughout Nevada, one in Douglas County in 2009 that highlighted the need for a Community Center which stands today. He also facilitated Town Hall Meetings and policy forums in that position and worked part-time for the Nevada Small Business Development Center as a NxLevel Business Plan instructor and counselor for rural start-ups and entrepreneurs.
In 2009, Clint was nominated by Senator Reid to become the State Executive Director of the Farm Service Agency of the USDA. Later that year he was appointed to that position by President Obama as a Political Appointee and he held that position until January of this year when he was forced to resign because of the party change in the Administration. Clint’s accomplishments in the Farm Service Agency include implementing two new Farm Bills, assisting farmers and ranchers through 4 years of drought, reorganizing staff structure and culture throughout the state, and starting a new organic certifying agency after the NV Bd. Of Ag dropped the organics program in 2015.
Since April of this year, Clint has rejoined the NV Small Business Development Center as their Rural Business Advisor where he sees rural clients across the state.
Clint has had an interest in politics since he was 5 years old and he aspires to make a difference in whatever he does.
