First Town Hall Meeting Draws Crowd

Nearly 50 people attended a recent Town Hall meeting in Pryor, hosted by OPEA on Tuesday evening.

Ken Burrow from the GRDA Chapter organized the event, which was held at J.L’s Barbeque.

“We had a great turnout,” said OPEA Executive Director Sterling Zearley. “Eight different agencies were represented, with most questions dealing with the state’s budget shortfall.”

Current board members attending, in addition to Burrow, were Rita Heath from ODOT, and Christy Biggs from Veterans. Biggs also used the event as an opportunity to campaign for the District 9 board seat. Burrow is her opponent.

Among the agencies represented were GRDA: Tourism; Health; DHS; ODOT; Veterans; OESC. State retirees were also represented.
