May Declares Republican Candidacy for Rep. Ritze’s House Seat

Citing a need for common sense and change at the state Capitol, Stan May this week announced his candidacy for District 80 in the Oklahoma House of Representatives, the seat currently held by Rep. Mike Ritze.

May is a veteran Tulsa firefighter and the department’s public information officer. A second- generation firefighter, he has served 26 years with the Tulsa Fire Department.

“My father was a firefighter and then a dairy farmer. Dairy cattle require attention every day and my father raised me with a strong work ethic,” May said.

The conservative Republican said he supports the right to keep and bear arms and is 100 percent pro-life. He backs more funding for infrastructure and education.

“I believe schools should be fully funded, but I also believe Oklahoma must weed out waste andfraud in state government.

“The same corrupt factions have been in charge for way too long. We need change and we need it now at the Oklahoma Capitol,” he said.

May knows a thing or two about service to his state. As a firefighter, he has been deployed numerous times to aid in special rescue teams. He worked in the aftermath of both the 2013 Moore tornado and the 2011 Joplin, Mo., tornado. He has responded to numerous wildfires across the region, and many other catastrophic events. May is the current chairman of the State Fire Marshal Committee.

May is a graduate of Southern Nazarene University in Bethany and a graduate of Rhema Bible Training College. He is a father of three; and each attended public school in both Broken Arrow and Bixby, schools inside the district. He has been an active fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association for many years. He attends Life Church.

“I am ready to represent my neighbors at the Capitol. I will do so with common sense and integrity,” he said.
