Stitt Looks to Build New Governor’s Mansion

KTUL - October 13, 2022 6:22 am

According to KFOR, an affiliate of News Channel 8’s in Oklahoma City, Governor Kevin Stitt has plans to build a new governor’s mansion on the grounds of the capitol complex, saying the current governor’s mansion has fallen into disrepair.

Stitt’s office said mold in the HVAC system caused Stitt’s children to become sick, and that the house is a hazard because of electrical wiring.

Last year, the state completed a $2 million renovation of the governor’s mansion, including a new roof, new windows, new heating system, new kitchen and repairs for electrical, plumbing and structural issues.

Now, the Stitt’s live at the Oak Tree Golf and Country Club in Edmond, 20 miles from that State Capitol.

No public funds will be used to build the new home, with the executive director of Friends of the Mansion confirming that Stitt planned to raise private funds for the new home.
