New job

Some may not realize that the Oklahoma Senate is a “part-time” job.  Five years ago, a journey of self-improvement began when I started law school at night at Oklahoma City University.   It reached its culmination last week when I found out I passed the July Bar exam.   This week, I began at Williams, Box, Forshee & Bullard, a law firm in downtown Oklahoma City.

 

Another PC North Panther Serving Oklahoma

Corp. Comm. Patrice Douglas

Very proud of Edmond Mayor Patrice Douglas, who was just named by the Governor to replace Jeff Cloud on the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.

Like Secretary of State Glenn Cofffee, Patrice is a former student of my father’s at Putnam City North High School.   Like Jeff, who was one of my predecessors in the OKC Mayor’s Office, Patrice brings an important local government perspective.

Very grateful to Jeff for his service, and also to Governor Mary Fallin for her great appointments!
