Rep. Scott Inman, a candidate for the Democratic nomination in the race to be Oklahoma’s next Governor, will speak at Tuesday’s noon meeting of the Bryan County Federation of Democratic Women (BCFDW) at Roma’s Restaurant in Durant.
The public is welcome to attend the Dutch-treat luncheon.
Inman was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 2006 and has led the Democratic caucus since 2009, when he was the youngest person ever elected leader of a caucus in state history.
The 38-year-old Inman will complete his term in 2018 and is term-limited from running for further election to the state House.
He is one of three announced Democratic candidates for the office of Governor, all of whom are speaking to BCFDW this year. Connie Johnson, a former state senator and the Democratic nominee for U. S. Senate from Oklahoma in 2014, spoke to the group last month. Drew Edmondson, former Oklahoma Attorney General, will address BCFDW on October 17.
All three Democratic gubernatorial candidates are also expected to attend a multi-county Democratic potluck picnic on September 16, 11:00-4:00, at Pavilion #8, Ben’s Campground in Texoma State Park, Kingston, OK. The picnic is jointly sponsored by BCFDW, the Democratic Party of Bryan County, and the Democratic Party of Marshall County.
Inman, an attorney, is a native of Del City and a graduate of the University of Oklahoma and the OU School of Law.
He has received numerous awards for his contributions to the community and for his legislative work, including induction into the Del City High School Alumni Hall of Fame, the Oklahoma Bar Association’s Friends of Justice Award, the George Nigh Award for Young Democratic Leadership, Oklahoma Public Employees Association’s Legislator of the Year, and the Representative Opio Toure Statesman Award, named for a former state legislator and civil rights leader.
A few years ago, Inman was named a “Rising Political Star” on NBC News by Chuck Todd, host of “Meet the Press.”
He has served on several committees in the Oklahoma House, including the Veterans and Military Affairs committee. In 2010, he was named an Honorary Crewmember of the 507th Air Refueling Wing by the Tinker Air Force Base COMMSTAR program.
