More Farmers and Ranchers Have Jumped on Board to Support Tulsa Businessman Kevin Stitt for Governor

More Farmers and Ranchers Have Jumped on Board to Support Tulsa Businessman Kevin Stitt for Governor The Stitt for Governor campaign has announced that several additional ag producers have joined as supporters of Kevin Stitt for Governor- making the total now 80 farmers and ranchers across the state who have endorsed Kevin Stitt in his campaign to become the next governor of Oklahoma.

“I am honored to have the strong and diverse support of leaders from our hard-working agriculture community,” said Stitt. “Agriculture is one of Oklahoma’s economic mainstays, with our farmers and ranchers producing food and fiber for not only our state but also millions of people worldwide. Because our agriculture economy is so diverse, it is imperative that all facets of the industry have a seat at the table. As governor, I will seek advice from and fight to protect the agriculturists, farmers, and ranchers that play a vital role in driving economic opportunity and job growth in Oklahoma.”

Farmers and ranchers endorsing Stitt span across 37 different counties and include:

Alan Jett of Beaver County said, “As a 4th generation farmer from the panhandle, I am excited to endorse Kevin Stitt for Governor of Oklahoma. His message has been clear on his intention to serve as the Governor for all 4 million Oklahomans. He is a businessman that understands the issues agriculture faces in today’s society and will serve us all well.”

Brent Bolen of McCurtain County said, “Mr. Stitt, is certainly surrounding himself with the right folks for council with regards to agriculture and rural Oklahoma issues. I believe he will bring fair and proper guidance to our state because of his leadership skills developed during his years of doing business in the private sector. Kevin Stitt is the candidate rural Oklahoma needs.

Tammi Didlot, past president of Oklahoma and American National CattleWomen and current CFO for American National CattleWomen, said, “As a business owner and rancher, it is refreshing to see someone like Kevin Stitt in the race. I appreciate someone willing to run government like a business with transparency. His work mantra is similar to mine, ‘don’t ask others to do anything you wouldn’t do!’”

Eric & Tracie Chapman Family of Johnston County said, “This year’s Governor race is as important as ever. We must elect a Governor that represents family values, supports Oklahoma’s farmers and ranchers, and that will lead our state forward. We are proud to endorse Kevin Stitt for Governor of Oklahoma.”

Stitt is dedicated to working with the agriculture community in Oklahoma to achieve a vision of making Oklahoma a Top Ten State.
