Hello, my name is Kendra Menz-Kimble and I want to be your choice for the Oklahoma House of Representatives District 60, which includes El Reno, Hinton, north Yukon, Union City, Lookeba and Eakley.
I am the 4th generation of my family to be born and raised in Canadian county. I love this area and the people who look out for their neighbors. This is the place I have chosen to raise my children and it is my hope that someday they choose to raise my grandchildren here too.
I have worked in the finance industry for over 12 years. I have a degree in liberal arts from the University of Central Oklahoma.
My husband, Shane and I have owned K2 Veterinary Services for almost 9 years. I have managed this successful practice during some of the most recent economic challenges in Oklahoma history.
With this experience and my deep Oklahoma roots, I believe I would represent District 60 with common sense for the common good.
Leon Pivinski is the Democratic candidate running for office in State House District 47, which includes Mustang and Tuttle.
All too often, our current representative votes against our best interests from our pocketbooks to our civil liberties.
Leon Pivinski will change that trend, starting with taking state sales tax off groceries. He has been getting a great reception in the district for this idea, which lets local towns and counties keep their portion of the sales tax for police, fire and critical needs.
Leon says, "I feel we can work together to get the right things done, and I would appreciate your support to see that it happens.
A retired letter carrier, Leon has been married to Pam for 35 years. They have two adult children who both graduated from Mustang High School..
