Broken Arrow Mayor among Oklahoma leaders invited to White House

Mayor Craig Thurmond at the White House

Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond has been invited to the White House for the third time since January. Thurmond will attend the White House Conference with Oklahoma Local and County Leaders on Aug. 21.


The purpose of the conference is to develop a working relationship between the White House and leaders within the State of Oklahoma.


“It’s always an honor to be invited to a meeting at the White House,” Thurmond said. “I look forward to discussing issues that matter most to Broken Arrow residents, and Oklahomans as a whole, with the President’s staff.”


This is Thurmond’s third invitation to the White House since January. He was previously invited as a select group of U.S. mayors to attend Mayors’ Day at the White House: A Conversation with President Trump in January where President Donald Trump announced plans to spend $1.7 trillion on infrastructure.


Thurmond was also invited to attend the Mayor’s Infrastructure Discussion in March, where a select group of mayors met with D.J. Gribbin, Special Assistant to the President for Infrastructure.


City Manager Michael Spurgeon joined Thurmond at the March meeting, and will again accompany the mayor on Aug. 21.
