Pauls Valley is about to get visits from a couple of officials with something to say about what's going on in Oklahoma.

This month PV will be one of the sites to host a town hall meeting by U.S. Congressman Tom Cole.

Even sooner Oklahoma Labor Commissioner Leslie Osborn will be here as a guest at a Pauls Valley Chamber of Commerce board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 20.

Osborn was elected state labor commissioner in 2018. Prior to that she served 10 years in the Oklahoma House of Representatives for District 47.

During her tenure she authored landmark workers compensation reform and passed into law the first pay for success contract in Oklahoma, which was a public-private partnership with the Department of Corrections and the Kaiser Foundation to move women from incarceration to the Women in Recovery Program.

She currently also serves as the chair of the Oklahoma Occupational Licensing Review Board and the Department of Commerce’s automotive steering committee, which is actively working on recruitment of diversified manufacturing businesses to the state of Oklahoma.
