Our friends over at MuskogeePolitico have a great series profiling the candidates for Chairman of the OKGOP, next up: Pam Pollard.
Meet the Candidates: Pam Pollard, OKGOP Chair hopeful
Pam Pollard, candidate for Oklahoma Republican Party chair
Delegates to the Oklahoma Republican Party’s State Convention on April 11th will be choosing between at least three candidates for State Chair: Randy Brogdon, Pam Pollard, and Dave Weston. Like I did in 2013, I contacted each of the individuals, and they have all filled out a survey that I hope will help delegates be more informed for the convention. Brogdon’s survey can be seen here, and Weston’s will be posted in a few days.
Now up, Pam Pollard.
1. Tell us a little bit about your personal side.
I am happily married to my husband Glenn, the step-mom to 6 and Mimi to 12 grandchildren. Glenn and I met in Church soon after he had become a widower and have been happily married for 27 years. I am originally from Florida and played softball for the Univ of Florida, earning the honor of All-Conference pitcher in my sophomore year. After graduating with a degree in Forest Engineering I was sent to work in Idabel, OK. Yes, from Orlando to Idabel, but I fell in love with Oklahoma and have been here 33 years.
I decided on a career change and in 1988 graduated with a degree in Accounting from East Central University in Ada. I am self-employed which allows me time to be a volunteer, spending most of that time with politics. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the HUGS Project, an organization that supports our troops by sending needed supplies to our troops overseas and is currently raising money to support the Patriot Clinic, a hyperbaric treatment facility to help veterans recover from PTSD and brain trauma.
