MCN offices to close for Memorial Day

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation will be closed Monday, May 25 to observe Memorial Day. Offices will reopen Tuesday, May 26.

MUSKOGEE – Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) today announced upcoming town hall meetings in Okfuskee and Okmulgee counties on Thursday, May 28, 2015.

These public forums are part of Mullin’s fourth round of in-person town hall meetings to be held in Oklahoma’s Second Congressional District. All meetings are free and open to the public. Registration is not required to attend Mullin’s town hall meetings.

“I look forward to sharing my ideas for holding the president accountable and fighting for Oklahoma’s values with the people I am privileged to serve in Congress,” said Mullin. “But most importantly, I want to hear your ideas about federal bills that impact our state and nation. My office is always available to help Oklahomans navigate Washington’s red tape. During these meetings, people can learn more about ways that we can be of assistance.”
