“It’s important to me to stay connected to Tulsa and northeast Oklahoma as we work together to get our state back on track.

Wendy will be a welcome addition as we work together to move our state forward.”

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to work for Governor-elect Fallin in her Tulsa office. I know the governor-elect is committed to bringing more jobs and opportunities to Tulsa, northeast Oklahoma and the rest of our state and I’m ready to help her make that happen,” Gregory said.
Gregory will start her official duties until January 10, when Fallin is sworn in as the first female and the 27th governor of Oklahoma.
