TULSA (February 17, 2020) – Greg Laird formally announced his candidacy for the Oklahoma State House of Representatives, District 66. The district covers parts of Tulsa and Osage counties and includes the cities of Oakhurst, Sand Springs, and Tulsa.Representative Jadine Nollan currently holds the position.
“I am running for State House because our State Legislature is failing in how they are managing our state,” Laird said. “Many legislators are more focused on politics, than doing what is right for Oklahomans.”
Greg Laird has been fighting for Oklahomans throughout his entire career. After earning his law degree at Georgetown University, Greg returned home to Oklahoma to work as an attorney, advocating for justice for everyday Oklahomans, both in private practice and with the Federal Oklahoma District Court. He currently works in the Tulsa County Public Defender’s office, working with youthful offenders, helping them to get their lives back on track.
Laird added that as State Representative he will focus on bringing common sense solutions to help solve problems facing Oklahoma, including in the areas of Education, Health Care, and Criminal Justice Reform.
“We need to spend less money on prisons and more money on our schools,” Laird said. “When we enact meaningful criminal justice reform, we can shift money from paying for prisons to paying for quality education, and we won’t have to raise taxes to do that!"
“I am already greatly energized by the amount of support we are receiving as we are launching the campaign. I am looking forward to visiting with voters over the coming year about ways we can work together to solve the real problems we face in Oklahoma,” Laird said.
Greg is married to Brandy, and he is the proud dad of Kate, Ella, Alexander, and Parker Rose.
