We need decisive leadership at our state capitol and I am ready to get to work and be a part of the solution.

In 2011, I retired from a 40-year career in public education. Some may say that I got out before things got really bad in Oklahoma, and in all honesty, I believe they are correct. Over the next five years I watched in horror as educators and students across our state were put on the chopping block, so in 2016 I became the first Democratic candidate for House District 75 in more than a decade.

I campaigned on a platform that promoted public education, knocked doors, got to hear the concerns facing people in my district, and on July 11, 2017, we flipped this district!  

I am a career educator, not a politician. I am not running for office as a stepping-stone to another career. I am answering the call to "Save Our Schools" and restore the Oklahoma Standard to one of which we can be proud.

If you live in House District 75, I humbly ask for your vote and your support. 

If you do not live in House District 75, I would very much appreciate your support through a financial contribution or a contribution of your time knocking doors and/or making phone calls for my campaign. 

Thank you! 

Representative Karen Gaddis
House District 75

Update from Rep. Gaddis

So much has happened since my election as State Representative to District 75 on July 11th! The days that followed were a whirlwind of interviews with both local news stations and with national news outlets as well. Everyone was surprised we had flipped a long-time red district to blue and attributed it to everything from discontent with national politics and politicians to the weather. But in my opinion, I simply conclude that the voters of District 75 were tired of the same old politics-as-usual and were interested in a change to transparent, responsible leadership with integrity.

Are You Satisfied?

Are you satisfied living in a state where our teachers are leaving in droves for greener pastures; where the jobs moving in are low-level and low-pay with little-to-no benefits; where ALL roads are in a constant state of repair or disrepair; where our rural hospitals and nursing homes are closing because of lack of Medicaid payments?
