Jason will be in Adair County for a town hall on April 14th. Details about time and venue are still being settled and we'll post again (and create a FB event) when they are available. We're holding a town hall in each of the 26 counties between now and the end of June.
Jason held a town hall in Miami for the resident of Ottawa County on March 14th. When asked the question, "Why do you want to go to Washington? You know how it is there. Why would you want to go into that mess?", Jason responded:
Jason was recently in Wilburton on the campus of Eastern Oklahoma State College meeting voters from Latimer County. We are often so focused on whether we're sending a Democrat or a Republican to Washington when what we need is an Oklahoman. We need an Oklahoman who worked their way through college; an Oklahoma who saw a need in his hometown and stepped up and ran for mayor to make a difference. We need an Oklahoman that represents our district, our values, our people. Jason is all of those things...
Tonight I heard from Muskogee County residents the same concerns I’ve heard traveling across Oklahoma’s Second Congressional District: We are disappointed; we are frustrated and exhausted by partisan politics. We must get away from “them” and “us” and instead encourage respectful civic participation where differences in philosophy are welcome – so long as we work to find solutions.
We must strive now to keep our country strong and free while respecting human dignity.
The bottom line is that people matter, and that belief should be at the heart and soul of our efforts. I look forward to sharing that idea as I continue to travel this district in the coming weeks and months.
