Lawton businessman to oversee repairs to Oklahoma Capitol

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man will help oversee spending on repairs to the Oklahoma Capitol.

Friday, Governor Mary Fallin appointed three people--including Lawton businessman Phil Kennedy to a committee that will supervise repairs made to the nearly century-old state capitol building. Kennedy is the owner and CEO of Comanche Home Center.

The committee was formed as a part of a house joint resolution which authorized a $120 million bond issue to pay for repairs and renovations to the building. Governor Fallin said in a press release Friday, she is excited to see the committee take shape to repair the 'people’s house'.
