Forum Stage

All four candidates for House District 10 and both candidates for House District 11 participated in the public forum on education which Bartlesville Public Schools sponsored on Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

If you were not among the 250 citizens present, you can still see and hear the candidates tackle a variety of questions about public education:
You can also listen to an audio-only recording:

After a series of questions on education topics, with each candidate given up to two minutes to respond to each question, moderator H. J. Reed instigated a lively "three words" lightning round.

House District 10 Election
Rep. Travis Dunlap is seeking re-election and will be facing Republican candidates Michael McFarland of Nowata and Judd Strom of Copan in the June 26 Republican primary. There will be a runoff primary for the Republican ticket on August 28 if needed. The winner will face Democrat Kevin Stacy in the November 6 general election.

House District 11 Election
Current Rep. Earl Sears is term-limited, so Republicans Derrel Fincher and Martin Garber will contest for that seat. Since there is no Democratic candidate, the winner of the June 26 Republican primary will represent the district in the next legislature.
