OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today released the following statement regarding Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed in freedom and equality of opportunity. His dream was for us to be a nation where every person would be judged by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin. We need to continue to strive to achieve that goal. I encourage all Oklahomans to join me in remembering the life of Dr. King, and take time to consider what each of us can do to make his dream a reality.”
Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be observed Monday, January 15. It is a state holiday. The governor’s office will be closed in observance of the holiday.
