HUGO — Republican candidate Mary Fallin met with the public Friday morning at The Mustang Grill to discuss her plans for the state of Oklahoma if she is appointed governor.
Fallin said her main focus is to bring more businesses into the state, therefore creating more jobs for communities. Fallin also wants to improve the education system. She believes that creating the very best education systems for the state will in turn bring more jobs to the people. Her third goal if elected will be to make the government more efficient and more effective for the people. Fallin believes the government needs to tighten its belt.
Also, Fallin says the state needs a governor that will stand up to Washington. When the state is being threatened by illegal immigrants, she said she will stand up and do what is right. Fallin voted against the federal government taking over the health care system. She said she considers it unconstitutional.
“This is about the future of our nation,” Fallin said. “We need to stand up against unfunded mandates. It’s going to be the governors who help turn this nation around, the governors will help get America back on track.”
Fallin is running against Democrat Jari Askins in the Nov. 2 election.
