Candidate Forum Set for June 4
Candidates for Oklahoma House and Oklahoma Senate will speak on June 4 at 6:30 p.m. at a candidate forum at East Central University. The event will be in the Estep Room of the Bill S. Cole University Center.
The primary election for House District 25 and Senate District 13 will be on June 18. Because all of the candidates are Republican, the outcome of these races will be decided by the primary election. The objective of the candidate forum is to provide citizens an opportunity to hear from the candidates and meet them face to face.
The candidate forum will begin with Senate candidates. The incumbent is Sen. Greg McCortney. He is being challenged by Jonathan Wingard and Rob Crowley. From about 6:30-7:30 p.m. these candidates will make opening statements and answer three questions from a moderator.
House candidates are incumbent Rep. Ronny Johns. He is being challenged by Robert Burch. From about 7:30-8:30 p.m. these candidates make opening statements and answer three questions from a moderator.
The candidate forum is sponsored by Ada Sunrise Rotary Club and ECU’s chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha Political Science Honor Society. For more information, contact Christine Pappas at
After the forum, candidates will be available to answer additional questions from voters. The event will be livestreamed on Ada Sunrise Rotary Club’s facebook page and will be recorded for later viewing to be posted at
