Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas recently welcomed Yukon, Okla. native, Jeremy Bennett to his district office. Bennett was hired by Lucas to serve as a field representative covering Canadian, Kingfisher, Garfield, Grant, Alfalfa, Major, and Payne Counties.
“I am very pleased to welcome Jeremy to my district office,” said Lucas. “He has always lived in Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District, and he is in touch with the issues constituents are most concerned about. I know with his educational background and knowledge, he will be a wonderful asset to my office and my constituents. I am glad to have him join our team.”
As a field representative, Bennett will act as a grassroots representative for Lucas, keeping the Congressman informed on developments in the area and attending events on Lucas’ behalf when he is in Washington.
Prior to accepting his new position in Lucas’ office, Bennett was the Graduate Teaching Assistant for the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at Oklahoma State University. He graduated from OSU with a bachelor’s in Environmental Science in the spring of 2011. Bennett also received his master’s in Agricultural Economics in the spring of 2013.
“As a constituent of the Third District, I am thrilled to work for Congressman Lucas,” said Bennett. “I am excited to represent and serve the citizens in the district in my new role as a field representative.”
Bennett is the son of Bill and Tracy Bennett of Yukon and Sandii Bennett of Oklahoma City. He is the grandson of Linda and Jim Jones of Oklahoma City and Gene and Betty Bennett of Shawnee.
Lucas’ Oklahoma office provides a myriad of services to constituents, including assisting in dealings with federal agencies and providing information and assistance with obtaining federal grants. When he is not working in his field area, Bennett will work in Lucas’ Canadian County office. He can be reached at (405) 373-1958.
