Holt Announces Bid for State Senate Seat
David Holt, chief of staff for Mayor Mick Cornett, announced his candidacy today the Senate seat in District 30.
Senate President Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee currently holds the seat. Coffee is term limited and will not be able to run for a Senate seat in 2010.
The district includes portions of Northwest Oklahoma City, Bethany, Warr Acres and The Village.
“This corner of the world is a special place,” said Holt. “The values I was blessed with here have stayed with me my entire life, and that’s why my wife and I still call it home. The people of this community have meant so much to me in my life. I am humbled to announce my candidacy as a conservative Republican, with the hope of giving back.”
Holt announced via an online video filmed in front of Wiley Post Elementary School in the 30th District, where Holt attended and where his mother was PTA President. The video can be viewed at www.votedavidholt.com.
Holt says he plans to walk the district in the coming months and talk to voters.
Holt also served in the Bush White House, for U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert, for Lt. Governor Mary Fallin, and several members of Congress from Oklahoma.
