BROKEN ARROW, OK – Joe Newhouse announced his candidacy on Thursday as a Republican for Oklahoma Senate District 25 with his family and 80 of his best friends at the Tulsa Veterans Council.
Newhouse wants to serve his community because he wants to emphasize the cornerstone of his message: service then, service now.
Like his fellow Veterans, Newhouse shares a commitment to service above self and putting others first. His values are rooted in military heritage, the Golden Rule, and the faith which he learned from his father. From combat uniform to business suit, his mission remains the same: to serve the public by safeguarding our rights and defending the Constitution.
With a heart for people, Newhouse says he is committed to service-oriented leadership and showcasing the principles of Conservatism, especially to the younger generations.
Newhouse says that he shares everyone’s concerns about the direction of our state and country, which is why he supports: curtailing federal overreach; the unborn; improved treatment for our Veterans; realignment of school districts; and drive-able roads.
If elected as state Senator of District 25, which will be vacated by Mike Mazzei who is term-limited and encompasses Bixby, S. Tulsa, and parts of Broken Arrow and Jenks, Newhouse looks forward to meeting the constituents of the district and continuing to move our great state forward.
Newhouse graduated from Broken Arrow High School in 1996 and Georgetown University in 2000, where he studied international economics; he completed a masters degree at Chapman University in 2008 in organizational leadership. He fought in the Iraq War as a Navy jet pilot in the EA-6B Prowler and later served as a flight instructor who taught air-to-air combat in the T-45C. He is a Realtor who owns his own real estate company, and he works part time as a field representative for Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK-1). He continues to serve in the US Navy Reserve as a military advisor to NATO where he tested fluent in 2 foreign languages; he has been selected to promote to the rank of Commander.
Newhouse and his wife Laura and their four children reside in Broken Arrow and attend RiverOaks Presbyterian Church.
