SANDERS NAMED YOUNG REPUBLICAN ELECTED OFFICIAL OF THE YEAR

KINGFISHER- State Representative Mike Sanders (age 35), a Republican from Kingfisher whose District 59 is composed of all or parts of six counties in western Oklahoma, has been named Elected Official of the Year by the Oklahoma Federation of Young Republicans (OFYR). First elected in 2008 and unopposed in 2010, Sanders serves in the House as Assistant Majority Whip and as Vice-Chair of the Committee on Human Services; he also serves on the Agriculture, Wildlife, & Environment, Public Safety, and Energy & Utility Regulation Committees. Prior to his election to the legislature Sanders served under President George W. Bush as Director of White House Interns and followed that role with a presidential appointment as Deputy Chief of Staff for Rural Development for the United States Department of Agriculture. A native of Kingfisher, OK, Sanders and his wife, Nellie, reside there with their sons, Davis and Walker.

"Representative Sanders exemplifies the Young Republican values of energetic leadership and hard work. He has been a representative in the truest sense of the term of young, emerging conservatism at the State Capitol. He is a family man, a champion for rural Oklahoma, and a promoter of youth involvement in the political process," said Stephanie Milligan, OFYR Chairman.

The Oklahoma Federation of Young Republicans (OFYR) will convene its 2011 State Convention at the Hilton Garden Inn, 801 S. Meridian, in Oklahoma City at 8:00 a.m. on 7-May. The breakfast event, keynoted by United States Senator Jim Inhofe, will precede the 2011 State Convention of the Oklahoma Republican Party which convenes later that morning at the Clarion Hotel next door. OFYR is comprised of Oklahoma Republicans age 40-and-under who are working to elect Republicans in the state and to promote political engagement amongst young families and professionals.
