State Sen. Boggs endorses Costello for Labor Commissioner


    State Senator Larry Boggs is endorsing fellow conservative, Cathy Costello, in the race for Oklahoma Labor Commissioner.  Larry Boggs is the former Director of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau and he is encouraging all rural Oklahomans to vote for Costello.

   “Cathy Costello best represents the conservative values of rural Oklahoma and she knows what it takes to create good jobs,” Sen. Larry Boggs (R-Wilburton) says.  “She wants to get rid of unnecessary occupational licensing that puts a disproportionate burden on people who work in rural areas.  She wants to address mental health issues in the workplace, including substance abuse and addiction, that hold back rural Oklahomans from getting and keeping quality jobs.  Cathy is the only candidate talking about Oklahoma’s high workplace fatality rates — especially in agriculture.  Southeast Oklahoma has all the potential for an economic boom and the right Labor Commissioner can make the difference.  She wants to build our workers to be ready for jobs in agriculture, energy and the emerging markets of tomorrow.  Cathy Costello will help us develop the workforce we need.”

    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 runoff for Labor Commissioner is scheduled for August 28 and the general election will be held November 6, 2018.
