OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Oklahoma City small business owner and entrepreneur Nick Berry announced Monday he will seek the Republican nomination in House District 85.
In his announcement, Berry said, “I feel our district lost our conservative voice, and I’m going to work to bring it back.”
A graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Berry holds degrees in Energy Management and Entrepreneurship. He co-founded the energy logistics company, QuickSand, and is also an owner of Berry-Rock Homes, a real estate company.
In his free time, Berry enjoys sailing on Lake Hefner and is an avid pilot. Berry and his wife, Blakely, are active members of LifeChurch, where they host a weekly life group and are involved with several outreach ministries.
“As a volunteer with local ministries assisting the disadvantaged population, I have witnessed how our current approaches to help this demographic have been ineffective and frustrating to all involved. Through the free market system and the church, we can create a city and state which enhances the lives of all Oklahomans”.
When asked about the future of Oklahoma, Berry said, “we have to make some very difficult choices in the near future, however Oklahomans have an enhanced set of values that make Oklahoma unique. Combining our people and the innovativeness of our economy I believe Oklahoma can be a beacon of conservative values for the entire nation”.
The seat is now held by state Rep. Cyndi Munson a Democrat who won a special election to replace the deceased state Rep. David Dank.
Elections for Oklahoma House District 85 will be held along with other major elections in June of 2016. You can find more information about the candidates on FortySix News 2016 Elections page.
