Sen. Burrage comments on retirement of DHS Director Howard Hendrick

Sen. Sean Burrage, Democratic Leader of the State Senate, issued the following statement after Department of Human Services Director Howard Hendrick announced he would retire from that position at the end of February.

“Howard Hendrick has spent a quarter of a century of his life in public service, first as a member of the State Senate for 12 years and then as DHS Director for the past 13 years. I want to thank him for that service and dedication and wish Howard and his family the very best as they begin a new chapter in their lives.

“The work to reform and improve how DHS handles child abuse and neglect cases will continue to move forward as we seek solutions to ensure the safety and well-being of some of Oklahoma’s most vulnerable children.
