Hilliard Honored by House and Supporters
Rep. Wes Hilliard was the guest of honor tonight at an event at the ODP attended by his colleagues and local supporters. Lt. Gov. Jari Askins attended the event. Hilliard, one of the younger members of the State House of Representatives, reminded me that there are three Democratic legislators with roots in Sulphur, Oklahoma, his hometown (Go Tornadoes!) State Senator John Sparks' family is from the Sulphur area and State Rep. Al McAffrey was born in Sulphur where his father was a Freewill Baptist minister. Hilliard serves on the Public Health and Telecommunications and Utility Regulation Committees.
