What is your reason for running?
“I have spent my life in business, not politics and right now Oklahoma needs to send a solid conservative leader with a strong business background to Congress. One who is working to find pro–growth solutions that will reduce our national debt, balance the budget and get America back on the right track. Oklahoma small businesses owners need to be able to grow their companies without the constant threat of job–killing regulations, high taxes, Obamacare and an uncertain economy. As a Christian and lifelong conservative Republican, I will fight to protect the sanctity of life, our 2nd Amendment Rights and traditional marriage. And, I will continuously fight for our conservative principles and Oklahoma values, for our children and grandchildren, as well as all Americans.”
Why should Oklahomans vote for you?
“Oklahoma’s fifth district families and small business community needs more leaders with solid business experience that know how run a business, meet a payroll and balance a budget. As our next Congresswoman, I will work to find solutions for Oklahoma families and small business owners to get the government off their backs. We do not need the federal government to create jobs; we can create an atmosphere that encourages entrepreneurship and small business growth with a sensible tax system and little government interference. Moreover, I will work to find common–sense solutions to reduce our national debt, eliminate regulations that hurt job growth and cut taxes. What we need right now in Congress are tough, consistent and tested leaders who will put our conservative principles to work for the American people, as well as Oklahoma families and small businesses.”
What is your political experience?
Mayor of Edmond – Elected in 2009
Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner – Current
