Dear Editor,

Every day at our Boys & Girls Clubs across Delaware County, I see firsthand the issues our kids face. I see it in their actions, I hear it in their voices, I see it on their faces. It’s important that we remember that the issues facing our kids today have a direct impact on the adults they will become and their ability to contribute to our community and country as a whole.

With this in mind, we are committing to an Agenda for Oklahoma’s Youth, in order to bring forward policies and solutions that can move the needle for our kids and teens.

We all have a stake in our kids’ futures. Let’s make sure they’re all great. See how you can get involved by visiting or stop by your local Club! Kids need a champion. We are that champion. Join me in telling our elected leaders to prioritize our kids by prioritizing this Agenda. Our kids are the future. We must invest in them.
