I am Sara Peterson and I am running for State Representative of House District 41 because we need new priorities in our state legislation, and we are not going to get them by re-electing the same type of people again and again. I want what most Oklahomans want: to see Oklahoma prosper and succeed. It is my goal to help re-prioritize spending, create a bi-partisan effort with in the Capitol to do what is right for Oklahomans, and properly represent the people of HD41. 

I have a long standing history of advocating for public education, equality, and responsible spending. 

With your help and support, HD41 can be a catalyst for positive change here in Oklahoma. I, like others, have become frustrated and angry at the lack of representation for our district. For too long, this district has failed to provide quality options at the voting booth. I hope to be the option you've been waiting for. I wish to represent you, the constituents, on the issues that matter the most to you. I want to hear from you and learn what your struggles are, and do something about it. 

One troubling issue I would like to address as your representative are Oklahoma's poor rankings in public education. I would advocate for Oklahoma to no longer come in at the bottom in per pupil spending, teacher pay, and overall rankings for educating our children. When our teachers made the brave decision to walk out in support of our children, I stood in awe of the community coming together to ensure children were fed and cared for, and our teachers were wholly supported. Our district's legislator chose to refuse to see constituents, disparaged and accused teachers in the media, and despite the overwhelmingsupport from thecpeople he represents, refused to properly fund education in Oklahoma. He voted against hearing funding options. He voted against our children. We cannot afford to vote for more of the same next session. 

I would happy to discuss what is important to you. You may reach me at PetersonforHD41@gmail.com. 

I am a mother, and a passionate advocate for social justice. I work full time to pay the bills like most of you. Please consider supporting me as I advocate for you.
