OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Tulsa attorney and small business owner Scott McEachin filed papers last week formally entering the race for Oklahoma House District 67.
“My wife Debbie and I have been active members of the community since we moved to Tulsa in 1980 to open my own law practice,” says McEachin. “I have always come to the defense of the conservative principles of limited government and individual liberty. I am running because I believe that true prosperity will come to Oklahoma when we recognize the full width and breadth of our constitutional authority.”
McEachin was born in Tulsa but moved to California at a young age. After graduating from the University of California at Santa Barbara, he came back to Oklahoma, attending the OU College of Law. Since 1980 he has been a practicing oil and gas attorney in Tulsa.
“Early on in my career, like so many Oklahomans, I experienced the economic ups and downs of the energy industry,” McEachin said. “Through that experience I learned that hardship produces opportunity. Today, we face a $1.3 billion shortfall because of the failure to limit overall state spending and to properly allocate the amounts we do spend. I am running because I believe that conservative principles are not just talking points. Because we truly believe what we say, we need to be continue to stand up for those principles. We cannot afford to wait for Washington to lead. We need to stand up as a state and enjoy the benefits—the real tangible benefits—of our founding republican principles.”
McEaching says whether it’s through Article V Convention of States, Senator Mike Lee’s Article 1 Project, electing principled conservatives to office, we must return to those fundamental principles which yet, today, offer the best hope for Oklahoma and our nation.
McEachin is a member of The Federalist Society, a group of lawyers whose stated purpose, in part, provides for “…reordering priorities within the legal system to place a premium on individual liberty, traditional values, and the rule of law;” and, a longtime supporter of the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA), an Oklahoma City based not for profit that advocates for conservative public policy.
Scott McEachin and his wife Debbie have been married for 37 years and are active members of Kirk of the Hills Presbyterian Church in Tulsa, OK. They have three grown sons
