First Day of Session

Each year on the first day of session, the Governor addresses a joint session of the Legislature as the Senate joins the House chambers for him to give his State of the State speech.

His conservative message was inspiring, but he used one phrase that stood out as I have also said it many times since I was first elected:

We must focus on the next generation, not the next election.”

That is true conservative leadership.

Oklahoma has the opportunity to advance conservative measures this year for the betterment of our State & I hope that isn’t stifled by those who are looking to their next election rather than the next generation.
