Congressman-elect Markwayne Mullin is embarking on a "listening tour" of the 26 counties in eastern Oklahoma that make up the Second Congressional District.

The plumbing company owner from Westville announced Tuesday that he plans to tour the district and hear from constituents as he gets ready to take office in January.

Meetings will be held from December 3rd through December 7th.

Mullin, a Republican, touted his experience as a small business owner and vowed to fight bureaucratic red tape that he says is strangling the economy. Mullin also vowed to serve no more than six years in office if elected.
