We assume there are lots of money-grubbing lice at the Capitol, but few seem so obvious about it:
State Senator Dan Newberry announced Tuesday he’s stepping aside from his seat with District 37.
In a news release, Newberry said he will continue to be in senior management at TTCU The Credit Union and is publishing a book.
Newberry said it was an honor to serve as the senator from District 37.
“I want to thank the citizens of District 37 for placing your trust in me to represent you at the Capitol for nearly 10 years,” he said.
Newberry, a Tulsa Republican, represents an area including Sand Springs and west Tulsa. And the Legislature has adjourned sine die, and barring a call by the governor for a special session, will not meet again until February 2018. I mention this latter because:
Newberry said in a statement he will resign January 31, 2018.
Because God forbid he should miss even a buck of his $38,400 annual salary as a legislator.
