State Representative Ben Sherrer of Pryor Wins okPORK's Outstanding Legislator Award

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 17:59:29 CST

State Representative Ben Sherrer of Pryor Wins okPORK's Outstanding Legislator Award In 2010, the Oklahoma Pork Council established the Outstanding Legislator Award to honor members of the Oklahoma legislature for supporting Oklahoma’s pork industry. This year’s honoree is Rep. Ben Sherrer, R-Pryor. Sherrer was honored at the banquet on Friday evening at the 2016 Oklahoma Pork Congress.

“Ben Sherrer has been a good friend to the Oklahoma Pork Council and to rural Oklahoma.” okPORK Executive Director Roy Lee Lindsey said. “He recognized the positive impact Oklahoma’s pork industry had in our rural communities and helped us protect our freedom to operate. While there aren’t many hogs in Rep. Sherrer’s district, he wanted to know what he could do to help us and he stood with us on our most important issues.” Since joining the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 2005, he has continually stood behind the pork industry in support of farmers.

Sherrer is a person people listen to and trust. His support and understanding of issues important to okPORK members helped others around the Capitol learn about and support those issues. There is no doubt sharing the message important to farmers in Oklahoma would be more difficult without Sherrer in the House.

Sherrer began his service in the State House of Representatives in 2005. After winning election for his seat six times, Sherrer will term out at the end of 2016.

The 2016 Oklahoma Pork Congress was held at the Embassy Suites in Norman on Friday, February 26, with pork producers, allied industry supporters and others interested in the Oklahoma pork industry in attendance.
