Rep. Matt Meredith Releases Statement on Passing of Former Oklahoma State Senator Jim Wilson
OKLAHOMA CITY – Rep. Matt Meredith, D-Tahlequah, issued the following statement on the passing of former Oklahoma State Senator Jim Wilson. Wilson, a Tahlequah resident, served in the Oklahoma House of Representatives for four years before he served in the Oklahoma State Senate from 2004 to 2012.
“Jim dedicated his life to serving the people around him,” Rep. Meredith said. “He served his community by participating on local boards. He served his state in the legislature, and he served his country as a Marine. His loss will be great, but his legacy of service will continue for many generations. Janet and I are praying for the Wilson family during their time of grief.”
