Find out which seats are open for your local school board or muncipal posts by calling your county’s election board or go on down and visit the office. Next step is to file the proper forms and pay the fee. Once you do that, you’re on your way. Its rare that these seats are contested and we simply end up getting the same people year after year until they’re old as dirt. These jobs seldom take up much time, but have such a huge impact on your local community. This is the level at which the GOP started their takeover of our state 20 years ago. Lets use their own playbook against them.

As the old axiom goes: All politics are local. Winning at the local levels are more important than ever in Oklahoma since we are now stuck with an anti-public schools Governor.
