Lamb names Agriculture Advisory Committee


LAMB NAMES OKLAHOMA AGRICULTURE ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Oklahoma Ag Leaders to Support Efforts to Grow Farm, Ranch Economy

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – November 21, 2017 – Republican gubernatorial candidate Todd
Lamb announced today the formation of his Oklahoma Agriculture Advisory Committee. The
group of Oklahoma agriculture leaders will advise on issues to help strengthen Oklahoma’s
agriculture-based economy.

“Agriculture has been a long-standing backbone of the Oklahoma economy, and strengthening it
as governor will be one of my top priorities,” Lamb said. “There is no better time than
Thanksgiving week to reflect on how important agriculture has been to our state, and how we
can maximize its continued positive impact.”

“I am pleased to announce that Oklahoma agriculture business leader and 2017 Oklahoma
Cattleman of the Year, Tom Fanning of May, will serve as chairman of my Oklahoma
Agriculture Advisory Committee. Tom is extremely respected within agriculture circles across
Oklahoma, and I am privileged he has agreed to serve in this important capacity. I am excited to
begin a dialogue with him, and the other committee members on how best Oklahoma can
continue to advance its agriculture business entities.”

Fanning commented, “I am looking forward to assisting Todd Lamb with an advisory committee
that will singularly focus on creating more agriculture-based economic development
opportunities throughout Oklahoma and beyond. The goal of the committee is to showcase our agriculture economy, not only within our borders, but to the global business community outside Oklahoma. Todd Lamb is the only candidate with a broad, statewide vision for promoting agriculture business, and he understands the challenges farmers and ranchers face every day.”

Committee members include:
Blayne Arthur, Stillwater
Brent Bolen, Idabel
Jarold Callahan, Edmond
Tom Fanning, May
Joe Farris, Taloga
Jay Franklin, Vinita
Suzanne Gilbert, Tecumseh
Tom Gilliam, Newcastle
Britt Hilton, Knowles
Phyllis Holcomb, Kellyville
Jimmy Kinder, Walters
Keith Kisling, Burlington
Greg Leonard, Afton
Gaye Pfeiffer, Mulhall
Jeff Sanders, Hollis
Kenneth Sherrill, McAlester
Jack Sherry, Holdenville
Billy Sims, Mountain View
Monte Tucker, Sweetwater
Joey Meibergen, Enid
Barbara Jacques, Pawhuska

The committee is the second citizen advisory committee formed by Lamb. In August, Lamb
announced his Oklahoma Economic Diversification Committee whose goal is to create
opportunities for Oklahoma companies to showcase and export their products. Lamb said
additional Oklahoma leaders will be announced in the coming weeks to lead other advisory
committees.
