Tulsa, Ok — It’s been a productive first 100 days for Jenks businessman Kevin Stitt. That’s according to the man himself, and those working for him.
“We’ve gone from legislature vs governor, cabinet secretary vs cabinet secretary, to everyone working together,” Commerce secretary Sean Kouplen told us. Stitt believes his biggest step forward is requiring accountability. But he tells the KRMG Morning News he’s also enjoying the job. “People ask me what’s the biggest surprise, and I tell them it’s how much fun I’m having,” he began. “It’s so cool to get a new job and to really be enjoying it.”
Joining the KRMG Morning News for an in-depth hour on his first 100 days, Stitt told us work is getting done in a different way. “I am bringing a different environment and atmosphere to the capitol.”
Lieutenant governor Matt Pinnell is pleased to see the governor instill a sense of accountability. “I come into my cabinet meetings every week and we’re not just sitting around shooting the breeze,” he told KRMG. “We have real metrics,” he added. “ What are our one month goals, what are our two month goals, what are our quarterly and one-year goals,” he went on.
Stitt promises to continue his high energy approach, something Kouplen believes will happen. “If I’ve heard him say ‘move the needle’ once, I’ve heard him say it 100 times,” Kouplen chuckled. Join the KRMG Morning News from 8 am-9 am today to hear governor Stitt and some of his key cabinet members as we cover their biggest achievements, and plans for the future.
