Leonard Wolfe, United Bank

& Trust, Marysville

ABA recognized Leonard Wolfe,

president and CEO of United Bank &

Trust in Marysville with the “Excellence

in Advocacy” award. Leonard has been

a leader in Kansas for many years.

He brought passion to ABA advocacy

efforts. Leonard played a critical role

in shining a much needed spotlight on

the Farm Credit System and the inequities that go with this

government subsidized giant. Leonard also brought his voice

to Washington on behalf of hundreds of fellow banker’s across

the country to testify last July before the House Agriculture

Committee. He made it clear in no uncertain terms “that the

Farm Credit System is no longer lending on the farm.” Since

then, Leonard has often been called by members of Congress to

help them better understand the issue and he has been a driving

force in convincing other ag bankers to vigorously express

their views. Beware FCS, Leonard has you in his sights.
