“I support Gregory Hardin because he is an innovative thinker and his policies support public education. As an educator in the State of Oklahoma, it is important to me to have a State Representative that will support legislation that fully funds public education and removes barriers that prevent students of all backgrounds from reaching their full potential.” – Brandy Swinford
