Osborn Makes Run for Labor Commissioner Official

While it was no secret Rep. Leslie Osborn was seriously considering a run for statewide office, she made the announcement official Wednesday that she wanted to be Oklahoma’s next Labor Commissioner.

Osborn served as the House Appropriations and Budget Chair during this year’s legislative session. She said that she is answering the call from Oklahomans for a responsive, results-oriented leadership.

“We have serious challenges in Oklahoma. I am convinced we can meet them. As Labor Commissioner, I will work with businesses and workers in all 77 counties to create safe workplaces and strong companies,” said Osborn.

Before being elected to the House in 2008, Osborn was a small business owner for more than two decades. Now she is turning her attention to asking voters for her to take on the mantle of Labor Commissioner.

“I understand the important role the Labor Commission can play in building a better and stronger Oklahoma by championing people, jobs and businesses,” Osborn said. “In addition to making sure Oklahoma workers have safe places to work, we need a Labor Commissioner who is willing to visit and work with business owners across the state to find ways we can help them expand and succeed.”

Osborn made the official launch of her campaign at the Oklahoma History Center. A McCarville Report source provided part of her speech in a video you can watch below.
