OKLAHOMA CITY - Governor Mary Fallin today released the following statement regarding Martin Luther King Jr. Day:
“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of tolerance, mutual respect and human dignity is just as relevant today as it was when he lived. He believed in freedom and equality of opportunity for which the United States of America still stands. I encourage all Oklahomans to join me in remembering the life of Dr. King and take time considering what each of us can do to make his dream come to fruition.”
Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be observed Monday, January 18. The governor’s office will be closed in observance of the holiday.
