OKLAHOMA CITY (OK) – On Monday, Congresswoman Horn and volunteers from the campaign helped to clear debris from a local polling place following last week’s powerful storm that left thousands throughout the Oklahoma City region without power. Team Horn spent the morning at Wildewood Baptist Church clearing tree branches and other debris in an effort to get the polling location ready for tomorrow’s election.
“As the Congresswoman for the Fifth Congressional District, my primary focus is the health and safety of my constituents. Last week’s storm left so many families scrambling in an already uncertain time, and we need to do all we can to help,” said Congresswoman Kendra Horn. “We have already seen record turnout in this election, and we must make sure everyone is able to exercise their right to vote.”
Since the ice storm, Congresswoman Horn has worked with local unions and community leaders to provide support for people impacted throughout the region, including opening warming centers and offering meals to those who need it. Last week, Congresswoman Horn also sent a letter to Governor Kevin Stitt urging him to apply for federal disaster assistance by requesting a Presidential disaster declaration. People throughout the region continue to feel the aftermath of the storm, cleaning up fallen debris and some even still living without any power. More than 2OO,OOO Oklahomans still didn’t have power as of Friday.
