What ideas do you have to better the lives of Oklahoma’s children?
It would be my intent if elected to continue the work of my predecessor (Senator Griffin) as a vocal advocate for foster care, families and children.
What have you done to support children prior to this election?
My wife and I have been foster parents for nearly 15 years. My oldest daughter was a case worker for DHS for 5 years and is now a child advocate for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. My middle daughter is a college junior and was just accepted to the School of Social Work at the University of Oklahoma.
What will you do to support families in your new role, if elected?
I would do everything possible to encourage the development of quality communities who see the value in protecting our children. I would work with my counterparts in the Oklahoma legislature to seek criminal justice reforms, and investment in public education.
