Tulsa native Nik Berg announced his candidacy to fill the vacant Oklahoma House seat in District 75.
Gov. Mary Fallin has called a special election in that district due to the resignation of Rep. Dan Kirby, who faced an expulsion vote due to charges of sexual harassment. The special election will be May 9.
Berg is a Republican and has been actively involved in the local Republican party, is currently a Republican precinct chairman in Tulsa County, and has volunteered for current Oklahoma elected officials.
A graduate of Broken Arrow High School, Berg currently helps manage his family’s local small business. If elected, Berg plans to focus his time in the legislature on diversifying Oklahoma’s economy, lowering taxes, and therefore enhancing the lives of the people of Oklahoma.
“Having served locally in the community and abroad, I look forward to the opportunity to represent the people of District 75. I plan on meeting the people of the district and listening to the issues that they value most so I can effectively represent them at the State Capitol.”
