The Jenks Chamber of Commerce joined dozens of regional partners Wednesday, April 25 at the state capitol as part of the One Voice Regional Day at the Capitol.
Jenks was represented by Jenks city councilors and city staff, chamber staff and business representatives. In all, some 225 business leaders from the area attended.
Education funding, transportation funding and the governor’s quick action closing fund were among the issues discussed.
“This has been a great process for the region,” Jenks Chamber of Commerce President Josh Driskell said. “Instead of Jenks, Bixby, Tulsa, Glenpool, Broken Arrow and other municipalities going to the capitol with possibly hundreds of issues, we all band together and speak with one voice for ten issues we all sign on to support.”
Driskell said he appreciated some of the Jenks Chamber members who attended, including representatives from Continental Wire Cloth, Citizens Security Bank, State Farm Insurance, Public Service Company of Oklahoma and LaFarge.
