Press release

OKLAHOMA CITY – House Minority Leader Emily Virgin (D-Norman) released the following statement after Gov. Kevin Stitt, alongside House and Senate Republicans, announced a partisan plan for government accountability.

“We have reached a point where the term ‘government accountability’ has lost all meaning,” Virgin said. “By taking away the decision-making power of our boards, we are moving decisions from a venue that falls under the Open Meetings Act and is in view of the public to a venue that is literally behind closed doors and lacking transparency.

Additionally, we have had many agency heads that have pushed our state in the right direction in spite of Capitol politics. By removing the oversight ability of the boards, we are creating an environment that will not only allow political patronage but will demand it. This plan isn’t about providing transparency. It is about acquiring power.”

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a
blog article or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
Superb blog by the way!

Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does running a well-established website like yours require a massive amount
work? I am completely new to operating a blog however I do
write in my journal daily. I'd like to start a blog
so I will be able to share my personal experience and thoughts online.

Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
Thankyou! pof natalielise
