SODA Nominates Ardmore Senator for Southwest Regional Award

(OKLAHOMA CITY) – Senate Appropriations Committee Co-Chairman Johnnie Crutchfield has been honored as the “Star of Oklahoma” by the Southwest Regional Executive Directors Association, an organization of sub-state planning districts in a five-state region.

The award is given annually to the Oklahoman who does the most to support the sub-state planning districts in the state. Crutchfield, D-Ardmore, was nominated for the award by the Southern Oklahoma Development Association, SODA executive director Wes Bowman said.

“Senator Crutchfield’s understands the importance of the work that Oklahoma’s sub-state planning districts do. His support best exemplifies the goals of our organization,” Bowman said.

Nominees for the award are not limited to members of the Legislature. Each sub-state planning district in the state makes a nomination for the award and the honoree is selected by the Oklahoma Association of Regional Councils.

“I am humbled by this honor,” Crutchfield said. “SODA and the other the sub-state planning districts play a vital role in the development of Oklahoma and I am proud of the small role I can play in helping them meet the needs of the people of our state.”
