Oklahoma Farm Bureau members will hear from candidates seeking to serve as the next governor of Oklahoma during the organization’s leadership conference held March 5 and 6 at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City.

At least four candidates will share their vision and goals for the state during the forum held March 5 at 3 p.m. Candidates also will have an opportunity to offer their views on agriculture and rural issues. 

“This year’s gubernatorial election represents a significant moment for the future of the state of Oklahoma,” said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. “We’re excited to provide Farm Bureau members an opportunity to thoroughly vet candidates that will represent the best interests of the agriculture community and rural Oklahoma.”

Republican candidates participating in the forum include Todd Lamb, Gary Jones and Gary Richardson and Kevin Stitt. Drew Edmondson, a Democrat candidate, also will join the panel.

All declared candidates for the 2018 gubernatorial election were invited to participate in the Farm Bureau panel.
