Broken Arrow's mayor is back in Washington D.C. Tuesday for another meeting at the White House.

Mayor Craig Thurmond says being invited to the White House is an honor, an honor he has experienced three times since January.

Tuesday, Thurmond and other local and county leaders from Oklahoma will attend a conference.  Thurmond says the meeting is aimed at developing a working relationship between the White House and Oklahoma leaders.

The mayor says he looks "forward to discussing issues that matter most to Broken Arrow residents, and Oklahomans as a whole, with the President's staff."

In January, Thurmond attended Mayors' Day at the White House, where President Trump announced plans to spend $1.7T on infrastructure.
