“AL is a generous, servant, & dedicated man of integrity. He has done so much for our community and I’m proud to call him my husband,” Sandy Stevens commented.
AL Stevens is a fiscally responsible and social conservative who believes in a limited government, traditional marriage between one man and one woman, and is 100% pro-life.
AL states, “I believe the federal government continues to sneak its way into our everyday way of life through handouts to our state that often don’t need – I will be a strong voice for the people of District 13. They will be the voice I represent – not an encroaching federal government infringing upon our faith, freedom, & families. I will fight to protect the life of the unborn, our right to keep and bear arms, parental choice in education, and will bring common sense conservative solutions to the Oklahoma State Capitol. I would like to thank Jerry McPeak for his years of service to this community and district and I humbly ask for your prayers, support, & vote in this election.”
