Editorial: Re-elect Rep. Chuck Strohm, D-69

State Rep. Chuck Strohm, R-Tulsa, is a true picture of a citizen /legislator.

Strohm, who represents House District 69, is an engineer with more than 25 years of experience in design and research development. Strohm has worked in aircraft simulation, energy, wireless systems and missile defense.

His background as a small business owner gives him a clear perspective on the impact of government overregulation.

Before his election, he served on the Jenks Planning Commission and was chairman of the Jenks Bond Oversight Committee. This experience helps him operate as vice chairman of the House Business, Labor and Retirement Laws Committee. Strohm is a member of the A&B Revenue and Tax Subcommittee and the Common Education and Long-term Care and Senior Services committees.

He represents the Jenks School District and his conservative credentials and commitment to common-sense reforms are exactly the qualities needed during an historic budget shortfall.

Strohm is a devoted Christian who has written a book on prayer. He is staunchly pro-life and is against expanding state government and raising the tax burden. Strohm wants to stop state borrowing and give funding to priorities, like roads and bridges. He understands the proper role of government.

Rep. Chuck Strohm is a breath of fresh air in the Legislature and one of the most – if not the most – conservative representative from the City of Tulsa.  Oklahoma needs his expertise, his optimism and his drive for reform.

The Tulsa Beacon strongly endorses Rep. Chuck Strohm for re-election on November 8.
