OWASSO, OK – John Feary on Saturday announced his candidacy for Oklahoma Senate District 34 Seat.
District 34 covers northern Tulsa County including parts Skiatook & Sperry, Turley, Collinsville, Owasso and portions of the City of Tulsa.
Feary has been in public service for over 12 years serving the citizens of Tulsa County as a Taxpayer Advocate in the County Assessor’s office for five years and more than seven years at the City of Owasso as Project Administrator and Government Affairs Manager.
“I have dedicated myself to public service in order to help remove the obstacles standing in the way of people celebrating their lives.” Feary stated, “Senate District 34 is a thriving area of Oklahoma that has substantial growth opportunities for new business development and business expansion in every area of industry. Those opportunities, if not hampered by government overreach, will create jobs.”
Feary plans to focus on transportation needs that have a direct effect on District 34 and education funding. “As a father with 5th and 6th grade students in public schools I want to ensure that our children have the resources needed to be successful.” Those resources include adequate classroom funding and higher salaries for teachers. Feary strongly believes that with a consistent transportation funding mechanism accompanied with quality education opportunities that Senate District 34 and all of Oklahoma will become an environment perfectly acclimated for job growth.
“We have a responsibility to provide future generations of Oklahomans, especially our children, the opportunity to live, work, and play right here in Oklahoma,” Feary said.
Elections for Oklahoma Senate District 34 will be November 10 for a special primary election and January 12, 2016 for the general election to replace state Sen. Rick Brinkley.
The filing period is set for August 31 through September 2. You can find more information about the candidates on FortySix News 2015 Elections page.
