Washington, DC – U.S. Congressman Frank Lucas today announced the appointment of Garrett King to serve as his Oklahoma Agriculture Liaison.  Mr. King currently serves as Lucas’ Southwest Area Field Representative and will continue those responsibilities along with the new assignment.

In his new role as Oklahoma Agriculture Liaison, King will serve as a primary point of contact for constituents and agriculture groups to the Lucas’ office.  Additionally, he will represent Lucas at agriculture events and work with constituents on United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issues.

“Given my new responsibilities as Chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture, it is important to have someone on the ground that can listen to the concerns of my constituents and make sure they are relayed to me in an efficient manner,” Lucas said.  “Given Garrett’s understanding of the issues, I have every confidence that he is the best person to convey those ideas and concerns to me and the staff at the Committee.”

Prior to accepting his new title in Congressman Lucas’ office, King has served as the Southwest Area Field Representative and caseworker on all USDA issues. He graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford with degrees in political science and history.   While at Southwestern, King was active in student organizations including President of the Student Body.
