Pollard Announces Bid for House District 41 Seat

Roxanne Pollard, a Republican from Enid, announced Wednesday that she is a candidate for the open House District 41 seat now held by Representative John Enns.

“I strongly believe we need to be doing things differently in this state if we are to expect future success,” said Pollard. “I’m running for state representative because I want to help lead Oklahoma in a new direction so we can be a place that values public education, supports families and small businesses, and upholds conservative principles.”

Pollard, a Certified Surgical Technologist/First Assistant has spent her 35-year career in the health care field. Her husband, Barry Pollard,M.D. is a neurosurgeon with a medical practice in Enid for 35 years.

“Health care is an important issue that affects every Oklahoman, and I have a unique experience that I believe will serve our state well,” said Pollard. “Government-controlled health care like ObamaCare is not the answer. Instead, we must give the states more control over federal health care dollars so each state is free to invest in what works best for their own citizens. The health care needs of Oklahomans are not the same as those of New Yorkers.”

Pollard, a current board member and Vice Chair of the Autry Technology Center, said supporting public education would be a top priority for her.

“I believe in public education at all levels,” said Pollard. “Whether we are talking about common education, career tech, or higher education, the State of Oklahoma should be investing in and supporting public education. I think that’s one area where we can improve, and I hope to provide leadership to make us a more education-friendly state.”

Pollard said she always has possessed a heart for service, leading her to engage in many community initiatives over the years. She chaired the “Loaves and Fishes of NW Oklahoma” board, a food resource center, as well as the Enid YWCA. She also has served as the president or chair of the Garfield County 4H/FFA Livestock Committee; Rural Health Projects of Northwest Oklahoma; Community Development Support Association; Surgical Technology Program; and she is a member of the Women for Oklahoma State University Council.

“I have always believed in serving my community,” said Pollard. “It is an honor to be engaged in so many different areas of service where I have been able to make a difference in the lives of my fellow Oklahomans. I will take that same spirit of service to the state legislature if I am entrusted with the office of State Representative.”

Pollard and her husband farm and ranch in Garfield and Kingfisher Counties, as well as operate a Registered Angus Cattle operation in Waukomis.

The primary election for House District 41 will be held in June of 2018. For more information, visit RoxannePollard.com.
