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.

Leon Pivinski, Candidate for State House District 47

posted Jul 29, 2012, 10:21 PM by Jody Harlan   [ updated Jul 29, 2012, 10:35 PM ]

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..
