77 Series: Oklmulgee County

                                                       Okmulgee Curiosity

      Oklmulgee County is rather mysterious. I was filled with enthusiasm as I began economic research in the northeastern part of the state. There is the state’s largest industrial park, a well-organized electricity producing authority, colleges and higher learning institutions as well as abundant agriculture. The populations are rising steadily and there was not a whole lot of industrial need as seen in Oklahoma’s third congressional district. The major concern is in Ottawa County and cleaning up the chat mess. I also believe in reopening the zinc and lead mines for harvesting the ore as well as building the metal refinery in the scope of Project D2. I also with to expand the activity in the Port of Muskogee and together these are the two biggest industrial components thus far in Project D2.
      Oklmulgee County now presents the second congressional district with our first economic obstacle. This is home to the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and being Cherokee, I am sensitive to the needs of tribal areas. We are going to need to pull together a lot of resources to build a manufacturing complex that I have in mind. I believe that the Muscogee (Creek) Nation has a lot to gain from this project and it is now a component of Project D2: the collaboration of Native American tribes located throughout the state to participate in the development of a manufacturing complex that makes broadcasting equipment for the state and as an export to global markets.
      Upon doing research on the counties throughout Oklahoma, as well as global research on imports and exports, I have uncovered a plethora of economic opportunity for our communities should we pull together our resources and being this industrial initiative. For the state to participate in the enormous broadcasting equipment market, we will have to first disperse the manufacturing of the various components. We will need liquid crystal display manufacturing, plastics manufacturing, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, radio frequency, and other components manufacturing. Then, we will need a facility to put the parts together, package them, and distribute them. As you can tell by the superficial list just elicited, this is quite an undertaking; this is not at all impossible, however.
      I have a lot of research left to do as I finish the remaining 36 counties in the state. I want to finish the entire scope of the state before I begin drawing out the projects, seek fundraising, and further my campaign for congress in 2020. We have a lot of work to do but the designing is underway. The research thus far has proven extremely valuable as we can take what is working in our counties and use it in our struggling communities. One of the most important parts of this industrial development project is representation in legislature. We must have a strong person representing our needs as a state in Washington D.C. and I want to be that person fighting for our needs on the frontline while our state begins to heal economically.
      My name is Bevon Rogers and I am running for U.S. Senate in 2020 as a Democrat. In order to support me in the Primary Election on June 30th, you will have to be a registered Democrat because Oklahoma has closed primaries. I have been closely examining each county in Oklahoma to discover where the weak links are in our state’s economy and I have compiled each economic essay in a project called the 77 Series. You can find the series on my campaign website, www.bevonforsenate.com. As I begin writing essays on the counties in Oklahoma’s second congressional district, I will piece together Project D2, an economic endeavor to bring about higher standards of living throughout congressional district two.
