77 Series: Rogers Mills

                                           Rogers Mills and the Railway Parallel

      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, As I began writing essays on the counties in Oklahoma’s third congressional district, I began to piece together Project D3, an economic endeavor to raise the median per capita income of the congressional district by 30%, or $15,000. In order to do so will require legislation and a whole lot of industrial grit; I am the perfect man for the job.
      Rogers Mills County has the same need for a railway as Dewey County. The industrial enterprises that will rise in these areas will likely be linked to agriculture fostered food production and textile manufacturing. I would like to see to it that these communities have the appropriate avenues to bring their production to the global market and this will require new parallel railways that cross through these counties.
      Rogers Mills has a great opportunity to expand their agriculture due to the Ogallala Aquifer that the county sits on. The county has the capability to grow crops that require access to more water and the county will be able to bring these fruits and vegetables to market; the berries and other lush fruits will fetch lucrative prices when quality and quantities become more organized and a supply chain is installed to bring the produce to market. Furthermore, the innovative people within the communities that make up the county have an economic opportunity to manufacture food products that utilize the vast grain and oat resources to make foods that can be used in our distribution facilities that will be created to supply Oklahomans with its caloric needs. Storage and transportation of the fruit enhanced grain and oat products are rather cost effective and producing these products with our own resources will prove to be financially effective.
      Something that will need to be focused on as we develop new processes for manufacturing food products is that following the guidelines set forth by government to ensure safe consumption will be paramount. Legislation will be important to ensure economic feasibility of such endeavors that our citizens partake. Part of our processes will definitely include packaging on large scales and so I have included a link to the United States Food and Drug Administration website on the list of good resources for industrialists on my campaign homepage. On this government website, you will find all the required information for packaging and preparing manufactured foods for the sale and distribution throughout the United States. As this industry builds steam, the railways I have proposed will facilitate the distribution of these products. What is essential now is that our farmers take advantage of the ideal lands for the raising of fruits and the invention of processes to bring all the pieces together; it will take a collaboration of growing, preparing, packaging, and then distributing to make this work.
      When the time comes for a new machine to help mass produce the products made by the communities of Rogers Mills, our engineering students will be ready to take on the challenge of taking the processes and mechanizing them. This will take our industrial Oklahoma to the next level as we begin to expand and integrate horizontally, competing in larger and lager markets until we see food products from Rogers Mills being consumed in Brazil, Honduras, and even China; they will reach these markets by the trains that carry our production down through Mexico, into South America and out to the Pacific.
      The ideas that I present throughout the 77 Series, the ones that have collectively manifested Project D3, are not fairytales or daydreams. There are built upon the existing infrastructure that once was Oklahoma industry. Somewhere along the way businesses became too large, closed markets off from Oklahomans and made small operations impossible to conceive. That is why it is essential for an industrial legislator like me to be elected; someone who will ensure that barriers are broken down and market expansion is given for all who wish to design and implement new processes. Then, once our industrial Oklahoma begins to rise up once again, our per capita incomes will swell with the development of factories, refineries, and food processing plants, and a whole new outlook on life with result. We will begin to forget what pressures exist today; pressures like providing adequate clothing for our children, seeing them off to college, and making sure our bills are up to date. We will begin to forget what it is like to rely on the government to buy our food and instead, we will watch our people thrive off the land and resources that lay before us. We will be able to utilize them for the benefit of our state and our struggling communities. This is something beautiful and our state is ripe for such a movement; the industrial movement.
      But what about the financing? Industry begets industry. Just like my political campaign for Senate in 2020, I have written tens of thousands of words, I have yet to receive any fundraising, but I continue to write. Eventually I am going to break through and the news will hit the federal stage. People will see the dream and the vision. Then I will begin to gain support as people begin to help build the industrial train soon to sweep the nation. The same goes for those Oklahomans who see the economic opportunity. The ones that begin to design processes and expand their agriculture, experiment with making new food products, design processes for plastic essentials, and begin production of textile apparels or home fabrics, those are the ones who the investors will seek out first; they will be the ones ready to take it to the next level. Oklahoma is in the perfect place for a new industrial revolution, and all we have to do is show up and be ready for the undertaking.
