Trump Names Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin To Council Of Governors

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

President Trump announced his appointment of Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin as co-chair of the Council of Governors. 

Fallin will join nine other governors in serving on the bipartisan national council for a two-year term.

The council was established in 2010 as a way to facilitate greater cooperation between state and federal officials on issues of homeland security and disaster response.

“It is an honor to have been named co-chair of the Council of Governors by President Trump.  As a previous chair of the National Governors Association, I look forward to continuing my excellent working relationships with the other governors to provide suggestions and solutions on national security matters,” said Governor Fallin.

The other appointees by Trump to the council include Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican; Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, all Democrats; and Alaska Gov. Bill Walker, an independent.
