Kenneth Corn has spent his entire adult life serving the people of Oklahoma, including serving in the Oklahoma House of Representatives after being elected at age 22 and later in the Oklahoma State Senate. During his tenure, Corn was honored to serve as the Democratic Caucus Chair as well as the chair of the Senate Appropriations Sub-committee for Public Safety and Judiciary where he was considered a strong advocate for law enforcement and good steward of taxpayers’ dollars. During his service in the Oklahoma Legislature, Corn was a driving force behind increasing teacher pay, working hard to pass the Larry Dickerson Flexible Benefit Act providing 100 percent health insurance to school personnel throughout Oklahoma. Additionally, he tackled prison overcrowding and staffing shortages, additional academies to put more troopers on the street, and increased the pay of state law enforcement officials.
In 2010, Corn returned home to Poteau where he worked in the oil and gas transportation industry and in 2015, Corn was appointed the City Manager of Anadarko, OK where he manages the day-to-day functions of the city government and the public works authority.
