Statement from Democratic Leader Charlie Laster on the Loss of Former Governor Henry Bellmon

—“Oklahoma has lost a true advocate of the people today with the passing of Governor Henry Bellmon. As the first Republican governor of this state, Bellmon was an Oklahoman first—placing the needs of this state over the politics of party. He was a true statesman and a fine example of a bipartisan leader. Oklahoma is a better place today because of his service to this state, and he will be greatly missed.”
