Representative Markwayne Mullin was sworn into the United States House of Representatives today. He will represent Oklahoma's 2nd Congressional District in the 113th Congress.
“I am extremely humbled and honored for the privilege to represent the people of Oklahoma's 2nd District,” said Mullin. “I am looking forward to the work ahead and for the opportunity to serve.”
"For too long Congress has put off the tough decisions that are necessary in order to put the United States back on solid financial footing. Instead of being proactive to deal with problems, we see issues ignored until the last possible minute. I ran for this seat because I was fed up with politics getting in the way of problem solving. I intend to be part of the solution."
Mullin continued “I will remember why the people of Oklahoma's 2nd District sent me to Washington: to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to reduce our runaway deficit spending and control the federal budget. I will also work tirelessly to provide tax relief and do away with harmful regulations that cost jobs.”
Congressman Markwayne Mullin also announced the location of his official Congressional office in Durant. Congressman Mullin issued the following statement regarding the new office:
“I am thrilled to be opening an official Congressional office in Durant. Together with our offices in McAlester, Muskogee, Claremore and Washington DC, the Durant office will provide the best possible service to the people of the 2nd District. We look forward to a great relationship with the residents of Pushmataha County and are truly looking forward to the opportunity to help eastern Oklahoma.”
Staff for the Durant office will be: Johnny Moyer-Southern Field Representative and Betty Ford-Southern Caseworker.
