Custer County Democrats
I visited the Custer County Democrats in Weatherford last night at their regular monthly meeting. County Chair Jonathan Carter announced his resignation as he will start law school at OU next month. The group will host a county convention in the next 90 days to elect a replacement for Jonathan who can lead the group's efforts to mobilize Democrats for the November election in Custer County.
Emily Hall was guest speaker from the Holland for Oklahoma campaign. She outlined some of Insurance Commissioner Kim Holland's achievements since taking office in 2005. Integrity, trust, professional, consumer advocate. These are words to describe the commissioner and her work for Oklahoma citizens. For information about Holland visit her campaign website at http://hollandforoklahoma.com/index.php.
I was delighted to see my former history professor, Dr. Mel Fiegel, at the meeting and to meet Ed Smith, Clinton Police Chief. Smith and I were both recently selected for Leadership Oklahoma Class XX.
Also attending were CD 3 Chairman Mack Miller and State Representative James Covey. (photo included)
I look forward to the county convention and meeting Democrats from across the county and helping them re-organize for a strong GOTV effort in November. I invited all Custer County Democrats to the ODP's Democratic Family Reunion on Saturday July 29th at the Harn Homestead in OKC from 6 to 9 p.m. (So Tom, Bonnie, Leroy, Ed, Jill --- that means YOU!)
