ODP Statement on Rep. Griffith’s Passing

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party is deeply saddened by the news of Representative Claudia Griffith’s unexpected passing.

Griffith (D-Norman) was first elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 2014 representing House District 45. She was a dedicated public servant working to improve services for all Oklahomans. Representative Griffith’s passing is a great loss to our state, and she will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts are with her surviving three children, her husband Jim and the entire Griffith family.
