STATEMENT FROM GOVERNOR STITT REGARDING CHANGES AT OESC

OKLAHOMA CITY (May 22, 2020) – Governor Kevin Stitt issued the following statement today regarding the resignation of OESC Executive Director Robin Roberson:

"I want to thank Robin Roberson for her service during these unprecedented times. Oklahomans have the expectation that state services will be available when they need them the most, and I know there are still many Oklahomans waiting for unemployment benefits. I have confidence that the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission will identify the right leader to quickly get to the bottom of the issues exposed by this pandemic, to continue to modernize its antiquated systems as we move forward, and to deliver the services Oklahomans deserve.”
