Paul Rosino is now officially on the job as State Senator for District 45. The Oklahoma City Republican was sworn in during a ceremony at the Capitol November 22 as friends, family and other supporters looked on from the Senate gallery.
“I am extremely grateful to the citizens of District 45 for entrusting me to be their voice in the Senate,” Rosino said. “I’m looking forward to promoting legislation to help create more jobs for our district and our state, help our veterans, expand our economy and properly fund education, public safety, and other core services.”
Rosino served in the U.S. Navy for 25 years, retiring at the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer (E9/Navy’s highest enlisted rank). For nearly ten years, he was stationed at Tinker Air Force Base, where he served as Strategic Communications Wing ONE in support of their fleet of E-6B aircraft. A decorated veteran, Rosino held a “Top Secret” security clearance and received numerous awards and commendations, including Company Commander of the Year and Squadron Sailor of the Year.
After retiring from the military in 2006, Rosino got his real estate license and by 2009, had earned a broker’s license and opened his own business, Rosino Realty. He also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Management and Ethics from Mid-America Christian University.
Paul is a member of St. Andrew’s Church in Moore. From serving as a Sunday School teacher and base coordinator for food and homeless shelter programs while stationed in Hawaii, to his work with Habitat for Humanity and the Moore Community Center after area tornadoes while stationed at Tinker, Paul has always tried to put his Christian faith into action.
“Senator Rosino will be a strong voice on behalf of District 45 in the State Senate. His experience will be a valuable asset to our caucus as we work to build a stronger and more prosperous Oklahoma,” said Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Schulz, R-Altus.
