OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Gov. Mary Fallin has appointed a longtime Oklahoma City attorney to be the next secretary of state.
Fallin announced the appointment of Larry V. Parman to the post on Thursday. He will begin serving March 1 and still must be confirmed by the full Senate.
Parman replaces Michelle Day, who has been acting as interim secretary of state since former state Sen. Glenn Coffee stepped down from the post on Feb. 1.
Fallin says Parman will serve as a senior advisor on policy, economic and legislative issues.
Parman has served since 1984 as chief executive officer of Parman & Easterday, an Oklahoma City-based estate planning and elder law firm.
A former captain in the Army, Parman received his bachelor's and law degrees from the University of Missouri.
