On Thursday evening, the Guthrie Junior High SWAT team (Students Working Against Tobacco) along with Jim Ahlgren and Amanda Fortney (Logan County Project S.T.U.N.! (Stop Tobacco Use Now) coalition members) advocated for tobacco free parks to the City of Guthrie Parks Board.
The board members all voiced their 100% support of this endeavor. The board voted to bring the ordinance before the City Council.
“This is an exciting time for Logan County and the City of Guthrie,” SWAT Coordinator Lewis C. Robinson III said.
Passage of the ordinance make Guthrie one of the few cities in the state that will have this type of ordinance.
