Statement from Sen. Newberry on the closing of Lloyd E. Rader Center in Sand Springs

Sen. Dan Newberry (R-Tulsa) today issued the following statement regarding the closing of the Lloyd E. Rader Center in Sand Springs:

“The state of Oklahoma has been facing severe budget issues for the past few years. The closing of the Rader Center is an unfortunate casualty of the budget shortfalls. However, this unfortunate circumstance is an opportunity for Sand Springs to capitalize on a national movement of companies coming to Oklahoma.

We will begin to work with the Office of Juvenile Affairs to ensure the buildings are razed in a timely fashion and begin to look for economic development opportunities for the property that will bring much needed jobs to our community.”
