Boren to take private-sector job with Chickasaws

Oklahoma City (AP) June 2012

The lone Democrat in Oklahoma’s congressional delegation says he plans to take a job with the Chickasaw Nation when he finishes his term in Congress.

U.S. Rep. Dan Boren announced he will serve as president of corporate development for the Ada-based tribe. He said his job will focus on expanding the tribe’s business and commercial endeavors.

The 38-year-old Boren surprisingly announced last summer that he would not seek a fifth term in the 2nd District seat, which covers most of eastern Oklahoma and stretches from the Kansas border to the Red River.

Boren said he has resigned from his appointment as ranking member of the Subcommittee on Indian and Alaska Native Affairs and will recuse himself from any votes that would affect the Chickasaw Nation.
