Craig Murray to run for the Senate

Craig Murray, a retired Tulsa police officer who is now assistant police chief of Mounds, announced he is a Republican candidate for state Senate District 25. The district includes Bixby, southeast Tulsa and southwest Broken Arrow.

The current senator, Republican Mike Mazzei, is term-limited.

As the son of a Tulsa police officer and a registered nurse, Murray said he was taught from a young age the importance of giving back to the community.

“My family has been serving the citizens of Tulsa for over half a century as Tulsa police officers; my father joined the department in 1953, I joined in 1979 and my son joined in 2001. I recently retired after 35 1/2 years of serving the citizens of Tulsa, but I still feel the calling to serve,” said Murray.
