Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb will be in Purcell Monday for a town hall meeting to discuss economic development, tourism, job creation and other issues pertinent to central and southern Oklahoma.
Although Monday is a holiday for federal, city and county government employees, it is not a holiday for state employees.
A spokeswoman in Rep. Lisa Billy’s office said the holiday won’t affect the town hall meeting place as the building is reserved for Lamb’s visit.
The meeting, which is open to the public, will be at 10 a.m. at the McClain County Extension Center, 1721 Hardcastle Blvd.
“Oklahoma continues to thrive due to the hard work of its citizens,” Lamb said. “As lieutenant governor, I have the unique opportnity to travel to all of Oklahoma’s 77 counties, investing time in our citizens and hearing their concerns about various issues.
“Local leaders and residents know first-hand the solutions that will strengthen their community. Through this McClain County visit, we can discuss and determine together what courses of action need to be taken to keep moving Oklahoma forward.”
