Governor J. Kevin Stitt on Tuesday nominated Gary Crawley of Pittsburg County and the community of Savanna to serve on the Oklahoma Conservation Commission.

A Senate confirmation hearing will be forthcoming for Crawley as  the Area V Commissioner. His nomination would then go before the full Senate, and he would join the Commission at the July meeting. If confirmed by the Senate, he would serve a 5-year term expiring June 30, 2025. 

The conservation districts in Oklahoma are grouped into five areas in the state. Each area is represented by a Conservation Commission board member. Crawley will represent Area V. The conservation districts in that area include: Pittsburg, Okfuskee, Checotah, McIntosh, Hughes, Haskell, Latimer, LeFlore, Pontotoc, Coal, Johnston, Atoka, Talihina, Pushmataha, Marshall, Bryan, Kiamichi and Little River.

Crawley started as an associate board member in November of 2016 then succeeded Wayne Sexton on the Pittsburg County Conservation District Board in 2019.
