The Trump Administration has invited county commissioners from across the U.S. to visit the White House and talk about issues and other things they face.

Calhoun County Commissioners Steve Frisbie and Gary Tompkins accepted, paying their own way to Washington, D.C. for the August 8, 2017 meeting. Both came away feeling optimistic about a willingness on the part of the administration to work better with locals.

Citing an Oklahoma example about a waiver needed for a Meals on Wheels program that stretched across a state border, Frisbie recounted that the administration was able to solve the problem quickly - a problem that had been unresolved for years.
