According to PC News, the event will feature Oklahoma State Treasurer Randy McDaniel, where he will discuss the responsibilities of the State Treasurer’s office and the positive performance of the Oklahoma economy.

“Your tax dollars are safe and protected,” said McDaniel. “In addition, the state economy is doing well as we strive to make Oklahoma an even better place to live, work and raise a family.”

McDaniel chairs the Oklahoma College Savings Plan Board of Trustees, the Board of Investors for Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust, the State Pension Commission, and is a member of the State Board of Equalization, which certifies funds available for the state budget.

Additionally, he was also a distinguished military graduate and served 11 years in the Oklahoma Army National Guard, attaining the rank of Captain.

McDaniel lives in Oklahoma City with his wife Julie and their two children Grace and John.
