Oklahoma Democratic Party Announces Interim Executive Director

[OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, January 26, 2015] – The Oklahoma Democratic Party has announced that Executive Director Trav Robertson has taken a leave of absence to explore another opportunity. On Saturday, January 24, 2015, the Party’s Central Committee voted unanimously to promote David Scott as Interim Executive Director. Robertson served in the position for over 3 years and Party officials say that Robertson will be available to assist in the transition and provide any help necessary in the coming months.

Following the vote, Scott responded by thanking the Central Committee and stating: “It is humbling to be selected as the new Interim Executive Director for the Oklahoma Democratic Party. I am grateful for this opportunity and for everything that I have learned from our leadership team. We are going to continue to move the Party forward through collaboration and build on the successes we had in 2014.”

Scott has served as the Director of Information Technology at the Oklahoma Democratic Party’s headquarters since September 2011. For the past 3 years he has been responsible for maintaining of the comprehensive voter file used by most Democratic candidates in the state. Scott also assisted with directing campaign field work and volunteer activities for the state party and many Democratic candidates in Oklahoma.

Scott, a native of Ada, holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing from Oklahoma City University. At just 25 years old, Scott is one of the youngest Executive Directors for a statewide Democratic Party. Scott is also a member of the Choctaw Nation and is possibly the only Native American Executive Director of a State Democratic Party in the nation.

“It has been a pleasure working with Trav Robertson for the past 3 years. We have built an outstanding organization through partnerships across the state with candidates, partner organizations, Party leaders, elected officials, donors, and volunteers. We appreciate everything that Trav has done and will continue to do for Oklahoma Democrats but we look forward to where we will go under David’s enthusiastic leadership,” said Party Chairman Wallace Collins.

Oklahoma Election Board meeting in secret

ODP Logo

The 2014 election isn’t quite over yet.

As many of you know, our candidate for the 2nd Congressional District passed away before the General Election. Earl Everett was a war hero, and we were proud to have him as our nominee. Oklahoma Election Law currently protects our Party’s right to name a replacement and for there to be a special general election.

TornPaper_ElectionLaw

TODAY, the Oklahoma Election Board plans to meet behind closed doors “for the purpose of confidential communications between the Board and its attorney regarding pending claims related to the contest for U.S. Representative of Oklahoma Congressional District 2…”

We believe that Oklahoma Democrats have a right to hear the Board discuss this important issue in front of the public.

Please plan on attending this important meeting with our staff today at 5:00 pm in Room B-6 of the State Capitol Building. If you cannot join us today, call the Election Board (405) 521-2391 and tell them that you don’t think this issue should be discussed behind closed doors.

Time is running out to have our collective voice heard. Call the Oklahoma Election Board right now or be at the meeting with us at 5:00pm TODAY.

Thank you,

Trav Robertson
Executive Director
