Sen. John Sparks, D-Norman, issued a statement following Tuesday’s announcement from Sen. Anthony Sykes, R-Moore, unveiling an agreement for creating an additional judgeship for the voters of Cleveland, Garvin and McClain counties:

"I applaud Senator Sykes for his work on behalf of the Cleveland, Garvin and McClain county residents. This has been a complicated issue which has required considerable time and attention. The reassignment of a judge from one area to another is not to be treated lightly. Senator Sykes, as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is faced with many such issues. I appreciate his diligence. The additional judge will address the needs of these counties, while ensuring voters will continue to participate in the selection process.”
