Wes Watkins to Serve Osu as Congressman-in-Residence


STILLWATER (AP) - Rep. Wes Watkins will work as a congressman-in-residence at the Center for International Trade Development at Oklahoma State University next year, university officials said Wednesday.

Watkins, who helped secure money for the center, will have office space in the $10 million center and be paid $1 a year, university spokesman Nestor Gonzales said.

``This does not preclude him from seeking other business opportunities,'' Gonzales said. ``He will advise OSU, help get the center going and help get money to run the center.''

Watkins' 12-month contract is scheduled to be announced Friday at the regular meeting of the Board of Regents of Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges.

Watkins gave up his 3rd District seat for an unsuccessful bid for governor. He lost to Gov.-elect David Walters in the Democratic primary runoff.

Gonzales said Watkins will help the university develop contacts with foreign trade partners, establish congressional contacts to get more funding for the center and raise money to bring foreign leaders and other dignitaries to the center.
