Serving as your State Representative for Oklahoma House District 33 the last four years has been an honor and privilege. Servant leadership is not about pushing a particular agenda. Instead, it is listening closely to your needs and working with community leaders, city officials, farmers, business owners, teachers and for you and for every community I represent. It is about working together to find solutions to problems. Solutions that enrich our lives, provide for our safety, and financial stability, while preserving our freedoms and standing strong for our conservative values.
I have been blessed over my two terms in office to work with some outstanding people across HD 33. Here is a list of just a few of the accomplishments we have achieved together:
At the Capitol
Preserving our Second Amendment Rights and Protecting Right to Life
Repairs/improvements to Highway 18, 33 and 51
Additional County Funding - legislation allowing counties to accept federal relief funds without impacting their state funding.
Assisting constituents and small business owners with issues like unemployment, loan assistance, utility assistance, and regulatory policies and procedures
Establishment of State Medicaid programs - ensuring access to the Medicaid Act
Assisting the City of Yale with budget and other fiscal issues
Oklahoma Public Lands Resolution - emphasizes the importance lakes, rivers and wildlife have in our state.
Working with Ripley residents and city officials on infrastructure and fiscal accountability.
Sarah Stitt Act - better prepares prisoners who are leaving custody and rejoining society and the workforce.
Working with oil and gas companies in Cushing with safety issues.
Co-chair of the North Central Oklahoma Redistricting Subcommittee
Creating gun safety courses for OSU students and other groups across HD 33.
I look forward to another two years of representing the citizens of HD 33 and continuing to work on improving our communities and providing more opportunities for those that choose to live, work and invest in the communities across Payne County. Just like Caryl and I have for over 47 years.
