Canadian County, Okla. -- Cyndi Munson, Democratic candidate for House District 85, will speak at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 11 at the Canadian County Democrats’ monthly meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Yukon Police Department located at 100 S. Ranchwood Boulevard.

Munson, age 29, earned nearly 44 percent of the vote against incumbent state Representative David Dank, R-Oklahoma City, in 2014.

Rep. Dank died in April, leaving the District 85 seat open for a special election scheduled on September 8.

District 85 surrounds Lake Hefner and extends southeast toward Belle Isle in Oklahoma City; however, volunteers are coming from other counties to assist with Munson’s campaign.

“Democrats across the state are interested in helping Munson win this race,” said Mark Hammons, Canadian County Democrats vice chair and candidate for Oklahoma Democratic Party chair.

“I truly believe we need someone with fresh experience and proven perseverance representing our district at the State Capitol,” Munson wrote in an email to campaign supporters. “I spent my life serving our community with various non-profits and committed my life to making Oklahoma a better place for all, regardless of their background.”

Munson was previously employed as the community programs manager for the Girls Scouts of Western Oklahoma and continues to volunteer as a board member for her alumni association and the Oklahoma Messages Project. She is a member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma City Resource Board and the Oklahoma Women’s Coalition.
Seating is free and open to the public on a first come, first served basis.

The Canadian County Democrats meet from at 7 p.m. on the second Monday of each month (except December) at the Yukon Police Department located at 100 S. Ranchwood Boulevard. For more information, call 354-3189.
