Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) met with members of the Enid Chamber of Commerce this week in Washington.

“I enjoyed meeting with members of the Enid Chamber of Commerce this week,” said Congressman Lucas. “The City of Enid is a thriving community with an growing economy who’s impact can be felt across Oklahoma. We had a great conversation about community projects and the strong relationship Enid shares with Vance Air Force Base. I look forward to continuing to support the community and business leaders of Enid and the mission of Vance Air Force Base and the 71st Flying Training Wing.”

“Congressman Lucas is undoubtedly one of the most engaging Members of Congress! He brought his message to us in Enid a couple of weeks ago at one of his frequent townhall sessions, then shared his time with many Enid city leaders in Washington this week. I know that I am among the best informed and best represented Mayors in the country,” said Mayor George Pankonin.

“Congressman Lucas has been a steadfast supporter of Enid and Vance Air Force Base over the years. Our Enid group enjoyed and appreciated meeting with him this week to discuss important Vance projects and other opportunities for our city,“ said Jon Blankenship, Enid Chamber President.

“After 29 years of support and over $450 million of Military Construction funding assistance, Congressman Frank Lucas continues to work with us to support the mission at Vance AFB with all of the Operational facility requirements necessary for Vance AFB to be the “Best of the Best” for Pilot Training in the U. S. Air Force,” said Mike Cooper, Executive Director, Vance Development Authority
