As your representative in Congress, I spend nearly 40 weeks a year in Washington, D.C. While in our Nation’s Capital, my days are spent meeting with Oklahomans, visiting with Oklahoma families touring the U.S. Capitol, attending Energy and Commerce Committee hearings and markups, and voting on the House Floor on your behalf.
When I’m not in Washington, I’m traveling through the twenty-six counties I have the honor of representing. I spend my days touring local businesses, meeting with local and county officials, and talking with constituents just like you to discuss the needs and challenges of our communities and state.
My goal will always be to serve the people of the Second District to the best of my ability. That’s why since January:
And all of this is just in the first 7 months of this year.
- I have held more than 315 constituent meetings in Oklahoma and D.C. and have addressed over 25 groups of Oklahomans, including tribal leaders and members, state businesses, community groups, and chambers of commerce.
- I have dialed over 154,000 households during telephone town hall events and over 400 people have dialed in during the event, so that Oklahomans can utilize a direct line of communication to me while I’m in Washington.
- I have held 27 town hall meetings across the Second District to provide opportunities for frank, honest dialogue with Oklahomans.
- I have responded to over 13,500 pieces of constituent mail answering your questions and providing my viewpoints on legislation.
- I have participated in over 60 Energy and Commerce Committee hearings and markups to hear firsthand from the public about proposed legislation that will have the chance to be considered on the House Floor.
In order to best represent you in Congress, I want to remind you that regular feedback and participation is essential. When you call, email, attend a public meeting, or set up a meeting with me or a member of my team to tell me firsthand about the challenges the federal government poses in your everyday life, I am able to most effectively represent you and your priorities in Congress.
If you would like to set up a meeting with me while I’m back in Oklahoma or when I return to Washington, call my office. If you would like to express your opinion or voice your concerns, call one of my offices or send me an email.
