Seniors, Advocates, Long Term Care Professionals, and Concerned Oklahomans – Oklahoma City, OK – News, Weather, Video and Sports |

Because of the teacher walkout and the thousands of teachers and others rallying at the Capitol, Senior Day was moved to St. Luke’s Church.

The event was a wonderful gathering of seniors, advocates, provides, and legislators, including:

Speaker Pro Tempore Harold Wright Majority Floor Leader Jon Echols
Majority Whip Terry O’Donnell Majority Leader Mike Sanders
Representative Rhonda Baker Representative Carol Bush
Representative Tim Downing Representative Chris Kannady
Representative Ryan Martinez Representative Pat Ownbey
Representative Todd Russ Representative Kevin Wallace
Representative Tammy West Several Senators made the effort to try to get away from the Capitol but were not able to because of the crowds and traffic.

Special thanks to all of the event sponsors:
