OKLAHOMA CITY – Senator Jim Inhofe’s (R-Okla.) campaign has recently released the endorsements of 45 mayors from cities and towns all over Oklahoma.
Endorsers include Durant’s Mayor Jerry Tomlinson along with Mayor Mick Cornett of Oklahoma City, Mayor Dewey Bartlett of Tulsa, as well as mayors from all five of the state’s defense communities.
“I support those who support our community,” said Mayor Tomlinson. He said Inhofe has held the city of Durant in issues such as transportation and airport issues.
“In a nonpartisan way, I’m in support of Jim Inhofe,” said Tomlinson. Tomlinson said it is not a political statement that he is making with his support; it is just support of the man.
“As former mayor of Tulsa, I am honored to have received the support of so many mayors from across our state” said Senator Jim Inhofe. I know first-hand the challenges of running a city, and I know that often times the federal government makes it even more difficult.
I have spent my time in the Senate trying to streamline harmful regulations, help our cities and towns meet their infrastructure needs, and to be helpful in times of crisis.”
“Senator Jim Inhofe has been a champion for Oklahoma City’s infrastructure needs,” said Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett.
“Inhofe has played an integral role securing funding for the I-40 Crosstown expressway, the Downtown Boulevard, and has fought against unfunded EPA mandates that put a strain on our city’s budget.”
“In the wake of last year’s tornadoes, Senator Inhofe and his staff have been very responsive to our community and its needs” said Matt White, Mayor of El Reno. “Jim was the first elected official to tour the damage after the storm, and I appreciate his work to ensure we received disaster assistance in a timely manner.”
