YUKON, Okla. – Two Democratic leaders, Joe Dorman and Ken Corn, will inform and inspire the Canadian County Democrats at their first monthly meeting of the year on January 9, 2017.

Dorman and Corn will focus on getting involved in the state legislative process at the request of the organization’s members.

All Democrats are welcome to attend the free meeting from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Yukon Police Department, 100 S. Ranchwood.

Former state Representative Joe Dorman now serves as the chief executive officer for the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy.

The mission of OICA is creating awareness, taking action and changing policy to improve the health, safety and well-being of Oklahoma’s children.

A Democratic candidate for governor in 2014, Dorman previously served as a state representative in District 65, including Caddo, Comanche, Grady, Stephens and Cotton counties.

Former state senator Ken Corn is Anadarko city manager.

Corn was elected to his Senate seat by an 80 percent margin and made history as the second-youngest official in the state’s history to serve in the Oklahoma Senate.

He served as a senator from 2002 until 2010 in a district that includes Sequoyah and LeFlore counties and ran for lieutenant governor in 2010.

“We are pleased to have Joe and Ken help kick off the new year in Canadian County,” Tim O’Connor, Canadian County Democrats’ vice chair, said. “We expect to have a great crowd and encourage every interested Democrat to join us.”

The Canadian County Democrats’ meetings are regularly held on the second Monday of each month (except December) at the Yukon Police Department training room,100 S. Ranchwood. However, the meeting on Feb. 13, will be moved to the Yukon Library, 500 W. Main, due to a scheduling conflict. The Democrats will meet again at the Yukon Police Department starting on March 13.
