Sen. Brinkley selected as Majority Whip

OKLAHOMA CITY — Sen. Rick Brinkley has been chosen by his colleagues in the Senate Republican caucus to serve as Majority Whip.  Brinkley will coordinate with caucus members to advance measures through the legislative process. 

“Oklahomans have entrusted Republicans with a historic majority in the state Senate, and we look forward to working on a variety of issues and initiatives to put us on a path to greater prosperity,” said Brinkley, R-Owasso.  “I am honored to assume this responsibility and I look forward to working with each of our members to address the challenges and opportunities ahead.” 

Brinkley was elected to the state Senate by the citizens of District 34 in 2010.  He serves as Vice Chair of the Senate Finance Committee.  From 1999-2011, he served as President/CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Eastern Oklahoma, and is currently the organization’s Chief Operating Officer.  

“We have an opportunity this year to build on important legislative successes and improve the lives of Oklahomans,” Brinkley said.  “I am excited to have an opportunity to ensure the Senate remains focused on promoting economic growth and job creation in the coming session.”
