State Sen. Mark Allen (R-Spiro) announced this week that Billy Roberts of Roland is Gov. Mary Fallin’s executive nomination to the Oklahoma Used Motor Vehicle and Parts Commission.
The Senate confirmation hearing with the Business and Commerce Committee was May 17, when Roberts was formally introduced and accepted by the committee. He will serve a six-year term as an at-large member, from July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2022.
Allen said, “Billy has been employed by the family auto recycling business since his graduation in 1972 and he became co-owner with his father in 1992. He is active in the Automotive Recyclers Association and has served about 17 years on the board of directors. Billy has been an automotive dismantler for 4 years, and has a thorough knowledge of the business. It was my pleasure to nominate Billy Roberts for this appointment and I have every confidence he will serve Oklahoma citizens fairly and well."
