McAlester News-Capital: Fallin: Jobs is Job 1


If Oklahomans can only create more jobs, Republican gubernatorial candidate Mary Fallin says that many of the state’s other problems will take care of themselves.

Funding for areas such as education, law enforcement and corrections will increase if more Oklahomans are able to find jobs, Fallin said.

One way Fallin says she would help in that area is by trying to reduce the amount of red tape and regulations faced by businesses in Oklahoma, especially small business operators.

Fallin spent part of her afternoon in McAlester on Saturday, where she addressed the Oklahoma Federation of Republican Women, who met at The Meeting Place.
