We are honored to have the endorsement of the Tulsa Beacon- the Tulsa region’s conservative newspaper. Below is the text from the article, or you can read the article on the Beacon website at: http://www.tulsabeacon.com/?p=5909
Nathan Dahm for District 33
Nathan Dahm believes in the U.S. and the Oklahoma constitutions.
Dahm is so determined to uphold both of those documents that he is running for the District 33 seat in the Oklahoma Senate.
Due to the redrawing of district lines after the 2010 U.S. Census, that is an open seat (incumbent Sen. Tom Adelson, D-Tulsa, is in another district).
A former Christian missionary in Eastern Europe, Dahm has been the president of the Tulsa Area Republican Assembly. He voluntarily stepped out of that office to run for the Senate.
Dahm strongly supports the Second Amendment right to bear arms. That right needs to be supported from federal intrusion by state law.
Dahm believes in a balanced budget and thinks the Rainy Day Fund should be held for genuine emergencies – not in the regular budget process.
Oklahoma badly needs to reform its public education system and Dahm favors a free-market approach rather than a one-size-fits-all government strategy. He wants more money in the classroom and less to administrative bureaucrats.
Dahm supports more choices for families in education and is an advocate of private schools and home schooling.
Dahm wants to lower the tax burden for Oklahomans. Tulsa County has the highest property taxes in the state and Dahm would like to see the sales tax on groceries dropped.
Staunchly pro-life, Dahm thinks Oklahoma should protect the unborn.
Based on his service, the strength of his moral convictions and his ability to lead, the Tulsa Beacon is endorsing Nathan Dahm for District 33 in the Oklahoma Senate and suggests you cast a vote for him.
