Born in Kansas, Rex has traveled all over the world as an adult to finally set up roots in Tulsa with other members of his family. Much of his family has been here his entire life and as such, Rex has seen the rise and fall of many of Oklahoma’s staple industries, repeatedly. He stands before you as a change agent, ready to stabilize Oklahoma’s economy and to drag the education system into the 21st Century.
A Tulsan for a total of 16 years, Rex has worked in the telecommunications, energy, and aerospace industries as a technician, a machinist, quality assurance and control, production planning, and as Director of Manufacturing at various stages in his career, most recently as a premises technician for AT&T. He has seen a dramatic cross section of blue-collar Oklahoma and stands with his roots to enhance the quality of life for all.
Currently located in Broken Arrow, Rex has involved himself in state and federal levels of politics as an activist, Americans Elect party chairman, current Oklahoma State Director for the Our America Initiative, plaintiff in Lawhorn vs. Ziriax to update ballot access law and various other grassroots causes.
He was born into political life as a Democrat, until he realized that tax and spend will never solve any issues. He then migrated to the Republicans, where he spent most of his adult life, but still not comfortable with the overbearing micromanagement of citizen’s lives, dictating what you do in your own home and with your own property. Rex finally found a home with the Libertarian Party of Oklahoma, where neither tax and spend policies, nor oppressive regulation are tolerated.
Rex hopes you’ll join him on the journey to a freer Oklahoma and a freer America.
