KSCB News - October 20, 2010 12:00 am
Lt. Governor Jeri Askins will be visiting the Panhandle area on Oct. 24, and 25, to meet and greet the public.
To begin her visit, Askins will be visiting Boise City. Open to the public, she will be greeting guests at Panhandle Telephone in their meeting room at 817 W. Main from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
The group will then travel to Guymon to meet at Hunny’s, located at 103 N. Main st., with an open reception at 6:30pm.
Askins will be meeting from 9:30-10:30am with local businesses at the Main Street Guymon Office located at 116 NE 5th St.
OPSU will be the next stop on the tentative schedule, meeting from 11a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with Dr. Bryant and staff, first at his office, next to McKee Library to visit with the political science instructor, and then onto the Student Union to visit with students.
Last but not least, Askins will meet at the Seaboard Plant in Guymon from 1 to 3 p.m. to meet and greet workers there.
“We’re fortunate to have Jerri back in our area,” said Ecomonic Developement Manager for Epic Touch Mike Shannon. “She has always cared about rural Oklahoma and made a point to come back. A political person to come out here says a lot and when she is Governor, she will still pay attention to rural Oklahoma.”
All of the places Askins is to visit are open to the public and all interested are encouraged to come.
