And that includes Raymond Gary a Madill Democrat earned a reputation for knowing All of the ins and outs of financing state government during his four years As governor 1955-1959. A major problem faced by Bartlett is Pou ucal he is a Republican and the legislature continues to be dominated by democrats.
