Mullin makes first statewide tour as U.S. Senator for Oklahoma


Oklahoma U.S. Sen. Markwayne Mulling launched his first statewide tour of the state this week as Oklahoma’s freshman senator who replaced Jim Inhofe last fall.

Mullin traveled to Guymon and Boise City in the Panhandle. He  began his inaugural trip alongside Guymon mayor Kim Peterson, visiting with local residents and city officials at a community lunch before heading to Boise City for a town meeting.

Mullin concluded his visit back in Guymon, touring the Seaboard Pork Processing Plant and meeting with students and faculty at Panhandle State University.

“Growing up in Westville, I know how important rural communities are to feed and fuel our state, and power our economy. That’s why I felt it was so important to begin my tour in the panhandle and hear directly from rural Oklahomans about their top concerns,” said the Senator.

“I’m so glad that Senator Mullin picked Guymon for his first inaugural stop,” said Guymon Mayor Kim Peterson. “It’s an honor to have him here in the backbone of the panhandle to highlight all of the wonderful things we have going on here in Guymon. We’re proud to have him serving us in the Senate.”

Sen. Mullin continued his tour on Wednesday visiting Beaver, Laverne, Shattuck and Woodward.
