OKLAHOMA CITY — Gov. Kevin Stitt’s plan to hire a full-time aide in Washington, D.C., has stalled, although he apparently has not abandoned the idea.
Stitt made a quick trip to Washington this week to testify before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee but did not interview anyone for a job representing Oklahoma interests in the nation’s capital.
“The governor’s trip to Washington, D.C., was brief and solely focused on meeting with U.S. senators who sit on the EPW Committee and testifying on Section 401 of the Clean Water Act,” said Donelle Harder, spokeswoman for Stitt.
“The Governor’s Office is still looking to hire a public employee to represent the state full time in D.C. but has not yet taken further action towards fulfilling this priority at this time.”
