The September 12 Republican meeting will feature two more candidates for the 2018 election cycle. This is a great opportunity for all Registered Republicans, or those who are considering voting for one of the Republican candidates for the 2018 election cycle, to get an early first impression.

This month's featured candidates are Matt Pinnell, who is running for Lt. Governor and Glen Mulready who is running for Insurance Commissioner.

Matt has the honor of being the youngest Republican State Party Chairman in the U.S. at the time of his election. He was so successful in this role he was asked by Reince Priebus to serve as the State Party Director for the Republican National Committee. He then lead the transition team when Reince went to Washington D.C. Matt and his wife Lisa are entrepreneurs who created a new baby product that has now grown into an international business. Matt and his family live in Tulsa.

Glen Mulready spent 13 of 33 years in the private sector insurance industry working on the executive teams of Oklahoma's two largest health insurance companies. Glen currently serves the public in the House of Representatives as the Majority Floor Leader. He previously served as chair of the House Insurance Committee leading efforts to reform our state's insurance laws. Glen and his family live in Tulsa.

Also, we will be receiving a brief update on the budget situation from Representative Scott Fetgattter.

The Okmulgee County Democrats group held their July meeting Thursday night at the Okmulgee Public Library, holding it upstairs because a Harry Potter celebration was going on in the basement.

The main speaker of the evening, Joshua Harris-Till, leader of the Oklahoma Young Democrats, was unable to attend due to a family medical emergency.

Chair Tom Taton praised the group’s efforts in getting Karen Gaddis elected to the state House of Representatives. “It’s proof positive that community engagement works,” stated Taton. “It really works!”

Activation of the Finance Action fundraising committee, the Publicity Action committee, the Outreach Action committee and the Issues Action committee took place.

In other news, the June minutes and treasurer’s report were approved, there was a report on the June state convention of the Oklahoma Democratic Party, a website will be created for the group, and ODP shirts are available to order, T-shirts for $13 and polos for $20.

With a new school year approaching, it can be a good time to freshen up appearances as part of the back-to-school preparations.
