Longest Serving Oklahoma Commissioner Takes Fifth Oath

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma's longest serving statewide official has taken his oath of office in a career that has spanned four decades.

Corporation Commissioner Bob Anthony took his fifth consecutive oath of office Thursday in the commissioner's courtroom of the Jim Thorpe Building.

Anthony took his first oath of office in January 1989 and is officially beginning his fifth 6-year term on the three-member panel that regulates public utilities, telephone companies, trucking, and oil and natural gas production.

The 64-year-old Anthony has been a statewide officeholder longer than any other current elected official in Oklahoma, and is the longest serving current utility commissioner in the United States.

Oklahoma Supreme Court Chief Justice Steven Taylor administered the oath.
