State Representative Mike Sanders officially launched his re-election campaign today

Kingfisher, OK (April 11, 2012) – State Representative Mike Sanders officially launched his re-election campaign today, filing papers with the state Election Board. Sanders cited his conservative, pro-growth accomplishments and support for rural communities.

“It has been an honor to represent District 59. Together, we have successfully strengthened the rural economy, reduced the size of government, enhanced public safety and improved the business climate,” Sanders said.

Sanders, who is a member of the House Majority Leadership team and serves as Vice-Chairman of the Human Services Committee, has been a strong advocate for improved accountability at the embroiled Oklahoma Department of Human Services. He said he aims to institute major reforms at the agency to better serve children and families.

“As a father, I have a passion for giving Oklahoma children the best we have to offer,” he said. “We have taken some big steps in the right direction, but we must continue to strengthen the DHS system with improved transparency, accountability and oversight. ‘Mediocre’ is not good enough; only ‘excellence’ will do.”

Sanders and his wife, Nellie, have two young sons, Davis and Walker. The family resides in Kingfisher, where Sanders works in his family’s funeral service business.

“I grew up in western Oklahoma, and I am determined to ensure prosperity for the future. We must protect free enterprise so our small businesses can thrive, reject overreaching federal mandates like those of ObamaCare, and we must continue to preserve our agricultural heritage by supporting agribusiness.

“I’m ready to roll up my sleeves for our community once again,” Sanders said.

The primary election for state House will be June 26. The general election is November 6.
