Meet Gregory

Official Campaign Headshot

Gregory Hardin is a Journalist, Substitute Teacher, and College student who has lived in Shawnee his entire life.  Gregory is dedicated to fighting for, helping, and informing the hardworking people of House District 26!

I was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma at the Shawnee Medical Center or what is now SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital, born to parents Mary a home engineer and Greg formerly a carpenter who worked at Wolverine Tube for over 30 years now at Eaton.  As a kid I attended elementary & middle school at North Rock Creek; graduated from Shawnee High School in 2016.  While in school I played trumpet in marching band & concert band starting in 5th grade.  I was also in Shawnee High School’s Robotics team.

I currently attend college at the University of Central Oklahoma as a History Education major.  I have also been a substitute teacher at North Rock Creek, Bethel, Pleasant Grove, and Shawnee public schools; and I have hosted a show on YouTube called “The Green Corn Rebellion Show” where I have interviewed politicians, political candidates, and musicians such as former State Senator Ron Sharp, former Shawnee City Commissioner for Ward 2 Bob Weaver, and Cody Hason of the band Hinder.

Ever since I was a child I was interested in politics from the perspective of wanting to help people and society, which is what influenced me to want to become a teacher and start my show.  My goal if elected to the legislature will be to inform people about what’s going on at the Capitol & fight to enact policies that will strengthen public education, help improve the lives of working people, and continue the work this state has done with criminal justice reform!
