:: Oklahoma is a great place to live
And that’s the way I really feel about our great state. We have our own culture, heritage, pride, and people that set us apart from any other place in the world. My heart swells with pride whenever I get to say “I’m from Oklahoma!”
The way we care for and about each other here is fabulous. One of my favorite things to tell those who ask me about our city is to say, “It’s a big city with a small town feel.” It’s great to live in a city with so many friendly people!
Oklahoma is great because of it’s people. But we’ve also got a lot going for us economically. We have many diverse industries represented and therefore many opportunities regardless of the overall economy nationally. We have optimism and hope. We have an abundance of natural beauty and resources. What’s there not to like! I’m happy and I’m grateful to be an Oklahoman. We have much to be proud of... and I’m proud of Oklahoma!
