State Sen. Randy Brogdon, a candidate for Oklahoma Governor, hosted an ice cream social June 25 from 4-6 p.m. at Braums ice cream parlor on State Highway 99 and 270 in Seminole. There were more than 50 people who signed the attendance roster.
Brogdon, a Republican, is one of six persons seeking the governor's office: two Democrats and four Republicans.
A feature of Brogdon's campaign is that he considers himself to be a "Constitutional Conservative.
"I won't allow Oklahoma's future to be dictated by Washington, D.C. Government does not create jobs, small businesses do," he said.
He says he supports the protection of innocent lives and wants Oklahomans to have a quality of life for which they have worked so hard. He said he is not beholden to any special interest of lobbyists.
Brogdon has real life experiences, having been a businessman for more than 30 years. He said he plans to build a state budget with strict spending limits to prevent government from growing faster than the economy.
Brogdon is married with grown children. He was previously elected as mayor of Owasso and has been state senator for the past eight years, during which time he promoted strict spending limits and fiscal responibility.
"Until we re-establish discipline nad respect in the schools and until we get rid of political correctness, revisionist history and poor methods of teaching reading and math, we can set standards as high as we want and still not achieve the goal of quality educatio," Brogdon said during a campaign event at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City recently.
