Editorial: Elect O’Hara on September 14th

On November 14, the good citizens of Oklahoma Senate District 37 need to elect Brian O’Hara.

There is no other reasonable choice.

O’Hara is a former Jenks City councilor. He was a field representative for U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine. O’Hara has been endorsed by the National Right to Life Committee; the Tulsa Fraternal Order of Police; Tulsa Firefighters 176; OK2A; State Sen. Joe Newhouse, R-Tulsa; and Sen. Dan Newberry.

O’Hara is devoted to his wife, his family and his Christian faith. He has an exemplary record of public service and a valuable background in business.

This seat is open due to the resignation of Newberry, who is taking a job in private business.

Oklahoma has turmoil in the Legislature as the Republican governor and the Republican leaders in the House and Senate are acting more like liberal Democrats than conservative Republicans.

O’Hara will be a voice of reason for District 37.

Unfortunately, in the last five special elections around the state, four of the winners have been liberal Democrats.

District 37 voters need to reject O’Hara’s opponent on November 14.

Allison Ikley-Freeman, the Democrat nominee, is married to another woman. She is an advocate for homosexual marriage. She represents the wrong direction for Tulsa, Sand Springs, Jenks, Oklahoma and America.

A tiny handful of judges may think that homosexual marriage is permissible and legal, but it doesn’t make it moral.

Voters who are concerned about the moral tone of the Legislature should vote for Republican Brian O’Hara and not for his lesbian opponent. It’s time to send a message.

The Tulsa Beacon endorses Brian O’Hara in the November 14 special election for Senate District 37.
