If You Want to Change the World- Put Your Kid into FFA- Matt Pinnell's Message to Oklahoma Farm Bureau at Their 77th Annual Convention

If You Want to Change the World- Put Your Kid into FFA- Matt Pinnell's Message to Oklahoma Farm Bureau at Their 77th Annual Convention The government for the state of Oklahoma gets a different look in early 2019 as Kevin Stitt and Matt Pinnell are sworn in as Governor and Lt. Governor on January 14th. Lt. Governor Elect Pinnell spoke to the 77th Annual Oklahoma Farm Bureau Convention- and before he addressed the Farm Bureau members- he spent a few moments talking with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about the transition- and how things will be different between Governor Elect Stitt and himself- compared to the last four years. "Right off the bat, I just left a transition committee meeting with Governor Elect Stitt. What you will see is a Governor and Lt. Governor working together. It's going to be a "team" mentality with the Governor and Lt. Governor- and we haven't see that in a while. So, right off the top- the Lt. Governor being on the transistion team says a lot."

He expressed appreciation to those who supported him- and the fact that he got a majority vote in all 77 counties.

Pinnell assured the Farm Bureau convention participants that Governor Elect Stitt will be including names familiar to the ag community in the next round of transition team additions that could come as early as Monday- in fact he told them "one of two are sitting in this room."

Pinnell also bragged on the rural based youth groups- FFA and 4-H. He told the Farm Bureau meeting that during the campaign as he traveled into all 77 counties that "the best kids I met,without a doubt, are FFA kids, 4-H kids. Without a doubt."

Pinnell adds "If you want to change the world, you put your kid in FFA." And he added that his oldest daughter will be a part of the Jenks FFA in the coming year because of what he has seen in the young people who are a part of the Blue and Gold.

Pinnell told Hays that one thing he wants to help coordinate early in his term as Lt. Governor is a statewide AgriTourism Summit- saying he sees tremendous potential in helping rural families develop new revenue sources- saying when it comes to money making concepts for rural Oklahoma- "Agritourism is a big one."
