Editorial: Vote for Dr. Mike Ritze in D-80

Rarely do you find a combination of experience and expertise that is seen in State Representative Dr. Mike Ritze.

A physician and surgeon, Ritze has delivered more than 2,000. His pro-life credentials cannot be disputed.

Ritze has been an adjunct professor at several local colleges and he is past president of the Tulsa County Osteopathic Medical Society. His skills have been used by those in the aviation industry, by medical examiners and law enforcement.

Dr. Ritze knows medicine. He has served hundreds if not thousands of patients and their families in Broken Arrow and Tulsa.

He served as a captain in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and is a life member of the Disabled American Veterans.

A devout Christian, Ritze has served on several mission boards in his home in District 80. His family personally paid to put a display of the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the State Capitol with no expense to the state.

Ritze is an experienced citizen/legislator. He is chairman of the House Public Health Committee and sits on the A&B Human Services Committee, the Long-term Care and Senior Services Committee, and the Public Safety Committee.

He is a staunch opponent of the federal overreach into the lives of Oklahomans. He is a member of the NRA and The Gun Owners of America.

District 80 residents have a strong advocate for constitutional rights and for common sense in health and fiscal issues with Dr. Ritze.

The Tulsa Beacon heartily endorses Dr. Mike Ritze for re-election to the Oklahoma House of Representatives.
