Community Leader and Advocate for Latino Americans Announces for House District 89

 

OKLAHOMA CITY – A community leader and advocate for Latino Americans announced today that she is running for the Oklahoma House of Representatives in House District 89.

“I am running because I believe our children are our future, that working Oklahomans are the backbone bone of our economy, and that families were meant to be protected, not torn apart,” said Mary Sosa. “It’s time for us to work together and elect leaders that have a plan to protect families in our community.”

Sosa is a retired city employee for the City of Oklahoma City. Mary has lived in the district for 33 years and has raised her children and grandchildren there. She is the former president of the College Hill Neighborhood Association. Sosa serves as a volunteer with countless organizations including the American Red Cross, the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and the Neighborhood Alliance. Mary is an active member of Capitol Hill Church of Christ in South Oklahoma City.

“In the 33 years I’ve lived in House District 89, I’ve had the opportunity to work with people from every walk of life and see the problems our community faces firsthand. I have raised my children here and am lucky to have grandchildren growing up here too. I have decided to step up to do my part to make sure our community gets the representation it deserves at the State Capitol,” said Sosa.

House District 89 is located in South Oklahoma City. It is currently represented by Representative Rebecca Hamilton who will term out in November of 2014.
