OK County Sheriff P.D. Taylor endorses Cathy Costello


    May 21, 2018 --  Oklahoma County Sheriff P.D. Taylor is endorsing Cathy Costello in the Republican Primary for Labor Commissioner.  Taylor is also his encouraging colleagues in law enforcement to do the same.

    “I’m supporting Cathy Costello because she understands that mental health awareness in all sectors of society, including workplaces and public safety, are intertwined,” Sheriff P.D. Taylor says.  “Her platform on mental health awareness and education in the workplace is smart policy and it is long overdue.”

    Sheriff Taylor credits Costello with passing landmark mental health legislation and praises her detailed plans to create a task force dedicated to mental health in the workplace.

    “Our Oklahoma County Sheriff’s deputies encounter people with mental health issues every day and we understand firsthand how these problems affect the workplace,” says Sheriff Taylor.  “Cathy has shown great leadership as she worked to pass Oklahoma’s first Assisted Outpatient Treatment law — a policy which the National Sheriff’s Association has endorsed since 2003.”

     Cathy Costello is a co-founder of several businesses, both domestic and international, and is a sought-after national speaker and advocate on issues of mental health.  She has been instrumental in passing major state and federal legislation to improve how employers address mental health needs in the workplace.

       The Republican primary for Labor Commissioner is scheduled for June 26, 2018 and the general election will be held November 6, 2018.
