ACOG Hosted 3rd Annual Legislative Power Brunch for Central Oklahoma Legislators

The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) hosted a legislative reception Tuesday, January 26, at the Embassy Suites, Downtown Medical Center. All Oklahoma State Senators and Oklahoma State House Representatives who serve in the four-county region of Central Oklahoma were invited to attend. The four counties include Canadian, Cleveland, Logan and Oklahoma Counties.

The brunch is designed to educate lawmakers about ACOG’s legislative issues. Over the last five months, members of the ACOG Board of Directors have collaborated with Mark W. Sweeney, AICP, ACOG’s Executive Director and ACOG staff, to define the most pressing issues facing the organization and its members.

“Our guiding legislative principles are to ensure that local government authority and autonomy are preserved and protected,” Sweeney said. “We also support legislation that maintains and enhances funding for needed programs and projects that improve the quality of life for the citizens of Central Oklahoma and protects our cities and counties from unfunded mandates,” he continued.

ACOG selected issues include, but are not limited to: 

  • 9-1-1 & Public Safety
  • Air Quality | Clean Cities
  • Community & Economic Development
  • Transportation
  • Water Resources
  • Issues Facing Municipalities

Sweeney presented a new video highlighting ACOG’s story and then discussed legislation that has the potential to affect ACOG’s four county region.
