OKLAHOMA CITY - Governor Mary Fallin today released the following statement regarding Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:
“Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached a message of tolerance, mutual respect and human dignity that is just as relevant today as it was when he lived. He was a patriot who believed in the great potential of the United States of America and the message of freedom and equality of opportunity for which it still stands. I encourage all Oklahomans to join me in remembering and honoring Dr. King’s legacy on the 26th anniversary of the first Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.”
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is this Monday, January 16. The governor’s office will be closed in observance of the holiday.
