TULSA, OKLAHOMA - Advocating for school funding, responsible tax policy, and good jobs, local teacher John Waldron announces his candidacy for House District 77, which covers portions of Tulsa, Catoosa, and Owasso.

“I want to bring real change to our government, to restore public services like education and health care, and to bring common sense back to our budgeting process. It is time to give power back to the people. This year’s legislature was another bitter disappointment for anyone who wanted our government to deliver on a balanced budget, and to respond to the needs of the people of Oklahoma,” Waldron said.

A resident of District 77 for the past 13 years, Waldron says the future of his community is tied directly to what happens next at the State Capitol. “I am tired of the same old politics of special interests and budgets that just don’t add up. The people of Oklahoma were promised many things this year and got nothing but excuses. We were promised teacher pay-raises and got nothing. We were promised transparency and instead got a budget deal that no one saw before a vote was held. There is no accountability or responsibility and that is why I have stepped up before our chance for a better future slips away.”

He said his campaign will focus on restoring funding levels for education, retaining and recruiting teachers, and creating a community in which business leaders look to Tulsa, and to Oklahoma, as an exciting place to locate and grow. “When I look at my students, or my young son, I see so much promise in their eyes. Oklahomans have so much potential but we have to put in the work to see that fulfilled.”

Waldron, 48, and his wife of 14 years, Krista, have one son, eight-year-old Van. He is a member of the Church of the Madalene, and has taught Government and History at Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa for the past 18 years.
