David Hill jumps into 5th District race, joins crowded GOP field


David K. Hill, an Oklahoma City businessman, has joined the race for the 5th Congressional District, becoming the second Republican candidate to announce this week. I don't have an official press release yet, but the following is posted on his campaign website, DavidHillForOK.com:

David Hill is a dedicated father, a successful businessman, and a conservative outsider who has never held public office.  He started turning wrenches at the age of 16, fixing and rebuilding classic cars. Now David owns and operates MAR-K, the nation’s leading manufacturer of over 6,000 component parts for classic automobiles and trucks.

Before acquiring MAR-K, David spent 28 years in leadership positions across the education, energy, manufacturing, and technology industries, including at Logic Energy Solutions, Petrosmith, and Kimray Inc., where he was named one of Oklahoma’s “Most Admired CEOs” by The Journal Record.

David lives in Edmond, Oklahoma with his wife of 26 years, Shannon.  They have six wonderful children, including three strong, independent daughters and three selfless sons who all serve in the Army.   David Jr. graduated from West Point and serves as a first lieutenant in the Army flying Black Hawk helicopters.  Lauren is a University of Notre Dame graduate who works in IT security in Chicago.  Hunter is a senior at West Point and upon graduation in May will be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army.  Tucker serves in Army ROTC while studying mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton University. Finally, Katherine is a senior and Ashley is a sophomore at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School in Oklahoma City.

An avid runner, David co-founded the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, already in its 20th year, which has raised millions of dollars for the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.  He and Shannon also founded Providence Hall Classical Christian School (Now The Academy of Classical Christian Studies). David and his family are members of Christ the King Catholic Church in Oklahoma City.

David believes Congress is broken.

Nancy Pelosi and the career politicians in Washington have taken us down the wrong path.  They want socialized medicine, open borders, higher taxes, bigger government, and a complete elimination of our First and Second Amendment rights.  They have launched a “Green New Deal” that threatens to shut down our energy industry and tank our entire economy.

Now the politicians have made harassment, investigation, and impeachment of President Trump their top priority, ignoring American families struggling with sky-rocketing healthcare costs, facing an opioid epidemic that ravages our communities, and suffocating regulations that weigh down our economy, costing us jobs.

It’s bad for Oklahoma, it’s bad for America, and it’s time to say enough is enough.

David Hill won’t go along to get along.  He’s not a career politician.  He’s a fixer, a tough negotiator, and a leader.  He’ll fight to fix Congress.  He’ll answer to Oklahomans, and he’ll put an end to Nancy Pelosi’s crazy liberal experiment.
