State Representative Kay Floyd Announces Campaign for State Senate

Oklahoma City-Representative for House District 88 has officially announced her campaign for Oklahoma State Senate District 46. Current Senator Al McAffrey announced last week his bid for U.S. Congress.

“Senator McAffrey was a great legislator for House District 88 and Senate 46 and I know he will bring common sense leadership to Washington, just like he has to Oklahoma,” said Floyd. “I hope to continue his legacy of strong, progressive leadership in the State Senate, just as I have in the House.”

Floyd was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 2012. Before serving in the legislature, Floyd served as an Assistant Attorney General, the Deputy Executive Director for the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission, a State Administrative Law Judge and an Oklahoma City Municipal Law Judge. Floyd has been a leader in the legal, educational and nonprofit communities, dedicating her time to improving the lives of Oklahomans, especially women and children.

“Our state is plagued with extreme policies that don’t work for every day Oklahomans,” said Floyd. “We see education being cut left and right while many Oklahoma families are struggling to get by. Every year, we see legislation passed that only benefits a few and our state’s leadership continues to push us down the wrong path. I am dedicated to continuing the fight to make sure every day Oklahomans have a voice.”

As a state representative, Floyd has spearheaded issues most important to women and children including enhancing education, expanding suicide prevention, and reducing domestic violence. Both as a representative and a community leader, Floyd has a reputation of standing up for all Oklahomans.

Who paid for Mary Fallin’s campaign stop?

WHO PAID FOR MARY FALLIN’S CAMPAIGN STOP? 

Fallin Breaks State Ethics Laws

Oklahoma City – Gov. Mary Fallin seems to believe the people of the state of Oklahoma should fund her re-election campaign as she once again used state resources for campaign purposes according to Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair Wallace Collins.

“Gov. Fallin has used her official state ‘Gov. Mary Fallin’ account to tweet out an Ada News story regarding her re-election efforts in 2014,” Collins charged. “And what resources were used in making the call — campaign resources or the state’s resources provided by the people of Oklahoma?”

Fallin’s disregard of the ethic rules follows a pattern set by her office and other elected Republicans. Former Speaker of the Oklahoma House of Representatives and U.S. Senate candidate T.W. Shannon used his resignation speech in the House Chamber as a campaign speech for the Senate race. A few days later, the pastor of the day used their time to promote Shannon’s Senate bid.

“It seems the Republicans in general believe the ethics rules do not apply to them and they can conduct their campaigns in any fashion they choose.” Chairman Collins concluded, “I would challenge the Republican Party to ensure its candidates have been schooled on the ethics rules and monitor their activities to ensure these egregious violations stop.”

Donna Anderson Statement

Dear Education Supporters:

Oklahoma is an extraordinary state and I am so proud it is my home. Over the last fourteen months I have met so many fantastic people. Most of them desperate for educational change. I am extremely proud of the part I have played in bringing issues to light.

With all the support for my candidacy, it is incredibly difficult to withdraw from the race for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.  My health will not allow me to continue the schedule needed to campaign for this office. I am winning the battles and will continue to fight the war.

To my supporters, your contributions started the conversations of change every time I spoke at an event. Your kind words kept me going when days were difficult. I can never begin to express how much your belief in me kept me working toward positive change.

My career in education is far from over, and it is time for me to focus on my school family at Bennington. There are buildings to be built, stock shows to attend and successes to celebrate.  It will not be me leading education, but wherever I am children will come first.

Thank you,

Donna Anderson
