The Congressional Rural Caucus

Frankly Speaking

I am proud to let you all know that I have recently renewed my membership in the Congressional Rural Caucus.  The Congressional Rural Caucus is a bipartisan group of congressmen and women who want to work together to address the unique issues facing America’s rural communities.

Rural communities are the backbone of this country and play an important role in the Oklahoma economy.  As a fifth generation Oklahoman and farmer in Roger Mills County, my roots have always been firmly planted in the rural communities of Oklahoma.

I look forward to working with other congressmen of this bipartisan caucus to address the concerns of my constituents from the rural communities in the 3rd District.
