OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Gov. Mary Fallin will celebrate the start of another four years in office with a series of inaugural events, beginning this week in Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

Fallin is expected to raise and spend more than $1 million on events that will culminate with a $150-per-person inaugural ball at the Cox Convention Center on Jan. 12. She will be sworn into office on the same day during a public ceremony at the state Capitol.

The money spent on the inaugural events is private – mostly from major Republican donors and private corporations such as oil and gas companies, utilities and banks.

Reports on this year’s contributions and expenditures have not yet been filed, but records show Fallin spent more than $1 million in 2010.
