ROBERT AERY ANNOUNCES BID FOR OKGOP STATE CHAIR
Aery will bring conservative leadership for the future of OKGOP
Tulsa, Okla. (Feb. 22, 2017)– Attorney, business owner and committed conservative, Robert Aery today announced his candidacy for State Chair of the Oklahoma Republican Party. Aery’s resume brings a depth of experience in all aspects of Oklahoma politics to the race.
“I am looking forward to traversing the state, meeting fellow conservatives and discussing my vision for the future of the OKGOP,” Aery said. “Voters across Oklahoma have given members of our party vast legislative majorities and every statewide elected office. It is now critically important to not only build a strong state party operation that will be necessary to defend our gains in 2018, but to also begin the essential work of creating a long-term party infrastructure that will ensure conservative victories for future generations of Oklahoma Republicans.”
Under former Chairman Matt Pinnell, Aery managed the Tulsa field office and organized campaign operations for northeast Oklahoma. More recently, Aery completed a stint as the Deputy State Director of Americans for Prosperity Oklahoma during which he maintained daily operations and managed the state chapter’s policy agenda, field program, and community outreach.
Aery has served as a member of the Tulsa County Republican Party Executive Committee for multiple chairmen, is an officer of the Tulsa Republican Club, an associate member of the Tulsa County Republican Women’s Club, a lawyer member of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies and a member of the National Rifle Association.
“If elected, my first priority will be to enhance the state party’s ground capabilities for 2018 through updated field technology and increased data utilization,” Aery added. “Throughout this campaign, I will be reaching out to current and former supporters of the state party to discuss the importance of equipping our ground game with the modern campaign tools necessary to effectively identify, persuade, and mobilize voters, so that if I am elected, we can immediately get to work on the task.”
