Pam Pollard to run for OKGOP Chair

Pam Pollard to seek OKGOP State Chair Position
Republican Women State President Pam Pollard Announces candidacy


OKLAHOMA CITY – Former OK County GOP Chair, Oklahoma Republican Party Vice-Chair, and current Oklahoma Federation of Republican Women’s State President, Pam Pollard, today announced she is a candidate for State Chairman of the OK Republican Party. Pollard, speaking to the High Noon club said she entered the race to bring her nearly 20 years of experience to the position.

“The Republican Party is dealing with an identity crisis in today’s political environment. We must bring in groups who vote republican yet are not part of our party. It’s about adding and multiplying not subtracting and dividing. We must get organized and give voters a reason and
opportunity to be a part of the Republican Party.”

Pam has proven leadership skills having been elected 12 times to Republican Party and Republican Women positions. She has lead the Republican Women for the last year to reach out to younger women through their online club and brought in nationally recognized speaker Star Parker to help engage more minorities in the Republican Party.

“I am very proud to have served as State President this past year. Our women are known throughout the state as an integral part of the Republican Party having volunteered hundreds of hours of time and made combined Federation contributions to candidates of over $53,000.”

“I am running for State Chairman to bring my leadership and experience to the GOP. I will be a strong voice for the grassroots at our Capitol, supporting our elected officials–both financially and on the doorstep–but always be a strong reminder of the principles and platform of the
Republican Party.”

“I look forward to crisscrossing the state over the next few months with my plan to lead this Party.”
The Chairman’s election will take place on April 11, 2015 at the Republican State Convention in Oklahoma City.

(Note: Pollard joins two other candidates for OKGOP chair - incumbent Dave Weston, and former state senator Randy Brogdon.)
