Vinita resident seeks House seat

Chuck Hoskin, Vinita, has put his bid in for the Oklahoma House of Representatives in District 6, which includes Craig, northern Mayes and northern Rogers counties.

“I’m running because I know that I can make a difference at the State Capitol for the people of District 6,” Hoskin said. I’ve spent my life in this community working on important issues like education, healthcare, and economic development. The people of District 6, the people of my community, deserve the best in these areas and they deserve a Representative who works as hard as they do.”

Hoskin, a lifelong Democrat, is seeking the seat being vacated by Representative Joe Eddins who is leaving office due to term limits. Hoskin says that this election is extremely important for the future of the people of District #6.

“With term limits coming into effect the State Legislature will not necessarily be Democrat vs. Republican, but urban interest vs. rural interest,” Hoskin said. “We need a voice in Oklahoma City who is a strong and experienced advocate for the people of District 6.”

Hoskin says he has the type of experience that the Legislature needs.

“What we need in state government are fair-minded people who put people first. They listen to each other’s views, listen to their constituents, approach the issues with an open mind and solve problems,” he said.

“I’ve spent more than 10 years working in the legislative process, building partnerships with local, county, state and federal government officials,” said Hoskin, who has served on the Cherokee Nation Tribal Council. “I think the success I’ve had at making progress in healthcare, education and economic development will carry over into serving the people of District 6 in the State Legislature.”

Hoskin adds, “I grew up here, I’ve spent my whole life living, working, and worshipping among the people in these communities. No one knows the issues that affect this area better than I do, and I will spend every moment in Oklahoma City working to serve the people of District 6.”
