State Employees Back Ron Sharp in Senate District 17 Primary Runoff
The Oklahoma Public Employees Association Political Action Committee (OPEAPAC) had endorsed Sen. Ron Sharp (Shawnee) in the August 25th primary runoff election for Senate District 17. OPEAPAC is the political action committee for the Oklahoma Public Employees Association (OPEA). The association endorses candidates who have supported state employees and retirees in the past or whose candidacy demonstrates that improving state employment and core state services are a top priority for them.
“We endorsed Sen. Sharp in his primary because has committed to improving state employment and state agency services,” said OPEA Executive Director Sterling Zearley. “We continue to support him in the upcoming runoff.”
Established in 1976, OPEA is comprised of approximately 8,000 active or retired state agency employees across Oklahoma working to improve state employment and the services provided by state agencies.
