State Rep. Ajay Pittman

State Rep. Ajay Pittman (Dem., Oklahoma City), saying she is mindful of the coronavirus affect on the voting public as she declared her candidacy for a second term.

She is asking voters to support her in the Tuesday, June 30, Democratic primary elections.

“We are committed to help guide Oklahomans in maintaining our health and safety as we continue to confront COVID-19,” she said.

“I am asking my constituents to comply with the executive orders and positions of our state and local officials during this unprecedented time in history,” State Rep. Pittman commented.

“My commitment is to be of service not only to our constituents, but to the healthcare professionals on the front lines during this pandemic.”

Because of the crisis, she said, the Legislature has decided to have legislators conduct business from their homes, noting that she is very much involved in finalizing budgetary legislation and on other legislation faced by the State House of Representatives and the State Senate.

“The past two years have been both humbling and inspiring,” the District 99 state representative said.

“Everyday, I walk into the State Capitol and I am honored to represent State House District 99. 

“You can trust that I will remain a strong advocate and be an unwavering voice for the needs of our community.” She continued. 

“My career experience in the healthcare industry has given me a unique perspective on how to obtain and disseminate accurate information during a disaster, and develop effective health care and personal preparedness plans for survival.”

“We have a weekly call from Gov. Kevin Stitt, and I promise to inform you as quickly as possible, as I strive to remain in constant contact with health care professionals,” Tate Rep. Pittman went on.

The state legislator previously worked in the health and wellness program of the University of Oklahoma Physicians Hospital.

“The past two years have been both humbling and inspiring,” the District 99 state representative said.

“Everyday, I walk into the State Capitol and I am honored to represent State House District 99. 

“You can trust that I will remain a strong advocate and be an unwavering voice for the needs of our community.” She continued. 

“My career experience in the healthcare industry has given me a unique perspective on how to obtain and disseminate accurate information during a disaster, and develop effective health care and personal preparedness plans for survival.”

“We have a weekly call from Gov. Kevin Stitt, and I promise to inform you as quickly as possible, as I strive to remain in constant contact with health care professionals,” Tate Rep. Pittman went on.

“My commitment to you is to work tirelessly until we are not just returned to life before this disease, but beyond that, to ensure quality healthcare to everyone in House District 99 and the state of Oklahoma.”

Speaker Charles McCall appointed State Rep. Pittman to the Public Health, Human Services Appropriations and Budget, Agriculture and Rural Development, and Transportation Appropriations and Budget Committees, the reelection candidate pointed out.

“It is strong committees like these that have afforded me the opportunity to track bills, pass legislation and work with my colleagues on the fiscal affect legislation will have on my constituents,” she commented.

“I am working to not only unite our diverse communities with the resources you need to have a better life, but to ensure that our collective voice is not one that can be silenced.”

“State Rep. Pittman has been a tireless advocate on behalf of District 99 the past two years and I have no doubt that she will continue those efforts with the same dedication when reelected,” State Rep. Emily Virgin (Dem., Norman), the minority leader in the State House, remarked.

“State Rep. Pittman has championed anti-hunger legislation, criminal justice reform to combat our overpopulated prisons, legislation requiring diversity training for public education for teachers and legislation for economic development,” the minority leader noted.

“She has been a valuable member of the State House Democratic Caucus particularly on several issues, and especially those that directly affect minority communities such as reducing our high maternal and infant mortality rates, hair discrimination, and education achievement disparities,” the State House Democratic Caucus leader continued.

State Rep. Pittman “has worked in a bi-partisan fashion to

Pass bills in the State House,” the minority leader stated, “and, as a result, has delivered to her community state resources previously lost due to a lack of state funding.”

“She is not only my colleague,” State Rep. Virgin went on, “but she is my friend.

“It has been an honor to serve alongside her in the Democratic Caucus.”

“I am consistently inspired by the way she handles herself at the State Capitol,” the Democratic leader said, “and elevates the needs of her community.

“Her voice has become a necessity in our caucus and in the State House of Representatives and her presence is essential,” said State Rep. Cyndi Munson (Dem., Oklahoma City), the Democratic Caucus chairman in the State House.

“She is not only making an impact in district 99 and the state, but also across the country,” State Rep. Munson stated.

“I have had the opportunity to attend various conferences over the last year,” State Rep. Munson went on.

 “Almost everywhere I have gone, I have met elected officials from other states, who have worked with State Rep. Pittman on various issues, and expressed gratitude and appreciation for the good work she is doing for her community, in and outside of Oklahoma.”

State Rep. Pittman is a member of the Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus, the Native American Caucus, the National Black Caucus of State Legislators and the National Caucus for State Legislators.
