Governor Kevin Stitt Warmly Received as He Kicks Off 2019 Oklahoma Farm Bureau Leadership Conference

Mon, 18 Feb 2019 16:54:34 CST

Governor Kevin Stitt Warmly Received as He Kicks Off 2019 Oklahoma Farm Bureau Leadership Conference Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt was well supported by voters in rural Oklahoma- he was reminded of that by Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesell as he walked into the room where Farm Bureau leaders from across the state were happy to welcome him to their Leadership Conference on Monday afternoon. Governor Stitt agreed with the Farm Bureau President- and thanked the farmers and ranchers in the room for supporting him, saying that he would not be standing before them as Governor if rural parts of Oklahoma had not strongly supported him.

After his comments to the Farm Bureau, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with the Governor about his early days serving as Governor of Oklahoma.

Hays asked the Governor about a couple of the key topics that he raised with the Farm Bureau leaders- including his drive to get oversight in place for the boards and agencies that are a part of state government. Stitt says "I'm just trying to get the accountability right so I can make sure so I can deliver on the committments and the results that Oklahomans expect."

The Governor told Farm Bureau members that he had really enjoyed getting around to many of the agencies early on and meeting the state employees that make those agencies function. He told Hays "What I'm finding amazing is that previous Governors have never stopped by to see them- never walked the halls- never shaken their hands, and so just the fact that I'm there, showing that I care, kinda setting the vision and I just wanted change the culture that we are in this together and that there should not be an adversarial relationship and that we are just trying to move our state forward. So that's really the kind of culture that I am trying to change."

Hays also asked the Governor if, after highlighting the Oklahoma Youth Expo in his State of State message, did he plan to attend the 2019 OYE in March- he said he is planning on it, hopes to bring his kids to see what all is going on and to support the 4-H and FFA members who will be working hard during the show.
