First District Committee Selects New Chair and Vice Chair - Congratulations Amanda Teegarden and Joanne Tyree!

Following recent resignations by Grace Farmer and Jerry Buchanan (Sooner Politics story here), the First District Committee for the Republican Party met May 22nd in Tulsa to hold a special election for a new chair and vice chair. There were 16 voting members (one a proxy) present. After two rounds of tied voting and a brief question and answer period, Amanda Teegarden was selected as chair in a 10-6 vote. Voting was by secret ballot.

Joanne Tyree was the only announced candidate for Vice Chair and was elected by acclamation. Other candidates for chair were Bo Summers (withdrew after first vote and gave his support to Amanda Teegarden) and Jon McGrath. Neither Summers or McGrath or Tyree are members of the committee, but one does not have to be a member of the committee to be selected as chair or vice chair.

Congratulations to Amanda Teegarden and Joanne Tyree!

The event was moderated by Charlie Taraboletti of Bartlesville Radio, and was standing room only. The candidates answered questions ranging from the struggling state budget, education and criminal justice reform.

Blogger Digs Into Sheriff Candidate's Odd Financing

Michael Bates; one of Oklahoma’s most established and respected political bloggers, has found some really strange details about a very well-funded campaign for Tulsa County Sheriff.

  Vic Rigalado has raised more money than all 9 other candidates COMBINED! But what’s really puzzling is that the money seems to come in large part from a small group of folks who are connected to a company located in another county.

“Why are the executives and employees of a Rogers County manufacturing company, many of whom don’t live in Tulsa County, so passionate, so willing to give sacrificially in support of a candidate for Tulsa County Sheriff?” 
– Michael Bates

And many of the very large contributions come from folks who own very modest residences.

Congressman Bridenstine says: “I have the honor of representing the First District of Oklahoma, as such I believe that it is vital that I provide my constituents with information on how I vote on key legislation that impacts you.  Similiarly, it is very important to provide you with the reasoning behind each vote.”

Below is a list of “key votes” in the 113th Congress that I have made.  By clicking on the description of each bill, you will be able to read associated material that will inform you on the reasoning behind each key vote.
