Mick Cornett Endorsement-Governor of Oklahoma

Mick Cornett Endorsement-Governor of Oklahoma

I’m happy to endorse Mick Cornett for Governor of Oklahoma.

I’ve known Mick since the 1980’s and have always admired his talent, drive and sincerity. He spearheaded an incredible turnaround in Oklahoma City and Bricktown. Oklahoma City wouldn’t have become an NBA city without Mick.

As the longtime Mayor of Oklahoma City, Mick’s leadership resulted in Oklahoma City and Bricktown becoming a convention and tourist destination.

Two million tourists visit the Beavers Bend State Park/Broken Bow Lake area annually. I’m certain Mick will continue to make tourism a high priority in our state.

Oklahoma needs a proven leader and governor that knows tourism.

Oklahoma needs Mick Cornett.
