OMAG is proud to announce that Daniel Tarkington, the Mayor of the City of Checotah, has been appointed to the OMAG Board of Trustees. Mayor Tarkington is a member of the Mayor’s Council of Oklahoma and a graduate of the OML Leadership Class VI.
He began his career with Checotah in the City’s maintenance department and was elected Mayor in April 2015. Since becoming Mayor, he has been instrumental in the revitalization of the community. In partnership with the Chamber of Commerce, the City has held two festivals. Mayor Tarkington also started a beautification project, improving the City’s curb appeal along Highway 69 and Interstate 40 by clearing debris and installing an attractive white fence. Improvements have also been made to the sports complex and parks, including new lighting and the addition of ballfield fences, playground equipment, a pavilion and splash pad.
Mayor Tarkington is devoted to his wife Jamie and his 3-year-old daughter RayLynn. And although he works long hours in the office, occasionally on the weekend you may find him on one of the local dirt tracks where he is a very successful race car driver.
Please take a moment to congratulate Mayor Tarkington on his addition to the OMAG Board.
