Lt Govenor Matt Pinnell Excited that the Oklahoma Standard is Alive and Well

Lt Govenor Matt Pinnell Excited that the Oklahoma Standard is Alive and Well Oklahoma Lt Governor Matt Pinnell made a stop at the Oklahoma National Stockyards on Monday afternoon to watch the benefit auction as a calf was sold multiple times to raise money for the All American Beef Battalion. Pinnell told Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Senior Farm and Ranch Broadcaster Ron Hays that he was so impressed with how the beef cattle producers, Stockyards firms and other ag industry interests came together in such a strong show of support for our men and women who are a part of the US Military, raising thousands of dollars to buy steaks for troops. "Oklahoma wants to lead the way in supporting our troops. Every state talks about it- we actually live it out each and every day- the Oklahoma standard is real."

The Lt. Governor also talked with Hays about several key issues for rural Oklahoma- including going after federal dollars for rural broadband. "Rural broadband is really at the top of our list when it comes to those federal dollars that are coming into the state of Oklahoma. We have no excuse- no state has an excuse not to address rural broadband in this country today because of the amount of money that is circulating in the states today."

Pinnell says it was a wake up call when you look at the numbers in the latest census- he says that we lost population in two thirds of our counties in the last ten years- so he believes that it's important to focus on building economic well being in our rural communities.

That includes developing the agritourism venues statewide. Pinnell says he is excited about the possibilities that can be found in rural Oklahoma going forward.
