Oklahoma Farm Bureau has named Robyn Matthews an associate director of public policy in OKFB’s public policy division.
In the position, she will work alongside other members of the public policy division advocating for OKFB’s grassroots policy at the state Capitol.
“I look forward to working at the Capitol helping promote what the Farm Bureau members want and believe in,” Matthews said. “I hope to educate legislators on how certain policy might affect agricultural producers and to be a source of information as to why these topics are important to Farm Bureau members.”
A native of Oklahoma City, Matthews attended Oklahoma State University where she majored in public relations. With an interest in politics, Matthews became involved with several local campaigns soon after graduation. After gaining more hands-on experience, Matthews joined the Oklahoma Credit Union Association where she served as a legislative assistant and political action committee coordinator.
Before joining OKFB, Matthews worked as campaign manager for Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter’s campaign for office. Prior to that, she served as a legislative liaison while Hunter served as Secretary of State.
