WASHINGTON, D.C. – Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond was part of a select group of mayors from across the nation to attend a special meeting at the White House, where President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence addressed the group.

Thurmond and Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett were the only Oklahoma representatives to attend the “Mayors’ Day at the White House: A Conversation with President Trump.” During the discussion, the president announced the federal government is planning to spend $1.7 trillion on infrastructure.

The mayors were already in Washington attending the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM), and a select group was invited by the White House to attend the meeting and a special reception with representatives of various federal agencies to discuss key issues within the mayors’ communities.

“It was an honor to be invited to the White House and hear President Trump and Vice President Pence speak and to represent the citizens of Broken Arrow,” Thurmond said. “Also, it was great to talk with the senior administration staff about federal funding for Broken Arrow.”

Thurmond spoke with the Department of Commerce regarding Broken Arrow’s planned Innovation District and the Department of Transportation regarding the City’s needs for road and bridge improvements.
