Oklahomans interested in serving the state may now apply online for a gubernatorial appointment. The new online application can be accessed at Gov. Mary Fallin's official website, http://governor.ok.gov. Applications previously were received only by email or mail and were then entered manually into a database. When a position became available, staff searched the database for applicants who met the specified criteria for the position. With the new online application, an instructional guide walks each applicant through the gubernatorial appointment application process. After submitting the application, the applicant can then select the boards, commissions or task forces they are interested in being considered for. The new online application automatically inputs all applicant information into a database that can be filtered and searched by the governor's staff.
Wreath-laying is planned for Dec. 10
Members of the Daughters of the American Revolution from across Oklahoma plan for a wreath-laying ceremony at the veterans memorial on the state Capitol grounds. The ceremony is set for 11 a.m. Dec. 10 at the veterans memorial, just north of the judicial center east of the Capitol. The ceremony honors those who have served and are serving in the armed services, as well as those killed, missing in action or who were prisoners of war. Wreath ceremonies are being held Dec. 10 at the state capitols of all 50 states.
