Small businessman Glen Mulready has announced he will seek the Republican nomination for State House District 68, a seat being vacated by term-limited Speaker of the House Chris Benge.
Mulready, who has worked in the privates sector for 26 years, said he has the right qualifications and experience to protect jobs, grow the economy and improve access to health care.
“Today, I own my own small business, serving employers who offer health insurance and benefits to their workers,” he said. “My experience gives me a comprehensive understanding of what businesses need to succeed. I will work to reduce the bureaucratic red tape and burdensome taxes that hamper investment and prevent expansion.
“Of course, health care reform is on the minds of most Americans and most Oklahomans. Given my background, I am more than qualified to help lead this issue. I will be a strong advocate for privatized medicine that protects individual freedom and competition in the marketplace. I will stand firm against any form of government run healthcare.”
Mulready and his wife, Sally, have been married 21 years and have chosen to raise their three young boys in Tulsa. Glen is a pro-life conservative. He says his strong faith and love for family have shaped his views.
“I have the conservative values shared by so many in our district,” Mulready said. “I support second amendment rights, the sanctity of life, and traditional marriage. My parents modeled service and citizenship to me. Serving our state to help move us forward and secure our future is simply the right thing to do.”
Glen has been active in his church as a youth director, and he is an active community servant, having served on the boards for Big Brothers Big Sisters, Citizens Crime Commission, Shepherds Fold Ranch and others. In 2008, he earned Leadership Tulsa’s Paragon Award for his work with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
“As I consider the future of our state, I think of my three small boys and know I want them to grow up in a community that is safe and prosperous so they might choose to raise their families here as well. At the Capitol, I will always act with integrity, honesty and honor, so I can bring pride to our community. I look forward to serving.”
