Senator Johnnie Crutchfield Plans to be Back at Capitol
Says Work on Behalf of Constituents Will Continue
State Sen. Johnnie
Crutchfield said he plans to be back on the floor of the Senate
within a week or two. The Democrat from Ardmore is home recuperating
after a blood clot traveled to a lung, causing respiratory difficulty.
He’s continuing to receive medications to dissolve a second
clot, and was not able to attend session this week. Crutchfield
said the clots may be related to knee surgery he underwent about
six years ago.
Crutchfield said while he is home recovering, he will be in constant
contact with his Senate office, ensuring constituent needs continue
to be addressed. His executive assistant, Marie Bigger, can be reached
at 405-521-5607 at the State Capitol.
“I want to thank my fellow members of the Senate, our staff
and other friends from around the state who’ve said prayers
and wished me a speedy recovery,” Crutchfield said. “I’m
truly grateful for their friendship and support, and look forward
to being back at the Capitol as quickly as possible.”
