Senate Minority Leader will not seek reelection

To the Editor: 

It has been an honor and a privilege to serve my friends and neighbors in Rogers and Mayes Counties and be their voice in the State Senate. Serving in the Senate has been both challenging and rewarding, and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity given to me.  But at this point in my life, I feel I need to turn my time and attention more fully to family and my law practice.

I’m very proud to have played a role in creating public policy aimed at improving the lives of all Oklahomans. I’m proud of my efforts to be an effective member of the minority party and to work with my colleagues across the aisle to do what is best for hard working Oklahomans. I have worked hard to represent my constituents well, shine light on important issues, ask the hard questions, and and hold people accountable.

I believe that the ultimate measure of a good public servant is how strongly they stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves and how tenaciously they protect the most vulnerable members of our communities. If that is the measuring stick of my work here in the State Senate, then I think I’ve been pretty successful.

Sincerely, Sean Burrage
