Enid’s Mike Jackson will assume a House Republican leadership position next legislative session when he becomes co-majority whip.
Jackson was named to the post along with current majority whip, Rep. Rob Johnson, R-Kingfisher. Johnson’s job, according to House Speaker Lance Cargill, will be to train Jackson to take over the position. Cargill made the appointment during a recent party caucus in Ardmore.
“With the addition of Rep. Jackson, we have a solid team of talented individuals ready to accomplish great things for Oklahoma,” said Cargill, R-Harrah.
“I’m honored to be asked by Speaker Cargill to serve in the position and will to my best to serve not only our caucus, but my Enid constituents,” Jackson said.
