Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after the cancellation of his town hall event in Tahlequah.

“Due to safety concerns, tonight's town hall in Tahlequah was cancelled,” Mullin said.  “Over the past few weeks, we have seen an escalation of protesters at congressional town halls across the nation.  We have even seen them right here in the Second District.  I have continued to hold town halls and answer questions from constituents across the district, including those who have been vocal in their disapproval of my positions.”

“It is my intent to provide a safe environment for all attendees which is why we have established protocols at each of our town halls to ensure each person’s voice can be heard.  Despite working with the venue, we could not reach an agreement using our protocols that guaranteed the safety of everyone, so I chose to cancel the town hall after much consideration.  As soon as we can secure a new venue and date, we will reschedule the town hall in Tahlequah, OK,” Mullin concluded.

The remainder of Congressman Mullin’s town halls will continue as scheduled.
