About Dan



Since being elected to Congress in 2004, Dan Boren has represented the Second Congressional District of Oklahoma as an independent voice in Washington. From day one, he has worked to uphold the values that eastern Oklahomans hold dear - faith, hard-work, and personal responsibility.

Dan and his wife Andrea welcomed a new addition to the Boren family last year. Janna Lou Boren was born on October 9th, 2007, and was named after Congressman Boren's late mother. Having already dedicated his time to serving Oklahoma's families, Janna is an added daily reminder to Dan and Andrea of the hopes and aspirations that all Oklahoma parents have for their children.

In Washington, Boren has been a strong advocate for eastern Oklahoma. He has built an impressive record of support for Oklahoma's military service members, veterans, working families, and small business owners.

Boren currently sits on the House Armed Services Committee which is critical to his work on behalf of Oklahoma's military installations, military families, and veterans. His position on Armed Services has provided $50.4 million for improvements to eastern Oklahoma's military installations. He also helped pass the single largest funding increase in the 77-history of the Veterans Administration.

Boren also sits on the Natural Resources Committee. This committee is an influential panel presiding over Indian Affairs, National Parks and other federal lands, energy and mineral resources, water resources, fisheries, and oceans. Among many other positives, the assignment gives Oklahoma's Native Americans and the thousands of Sportsmen across the state a seat at the table in Washington. Through this Committee, Boren has passed legislation to provide the Boy Scouts of America more land for the Tom Hale Scout Camp. He has also worked hard to uphold the rights of Oklahoma's Sportsmen on everything from public land-use and access, to conservation.

Back home in the Second District, Boren has worked tirelessly as an advocate for the needs of veterans, senior citizens, and children. As eastern Oklahomans have needed assistance navigating the red-tape of the federal bureaucracy, Dan has provided a voice for their concerns and a bridge to the solutions that they deserve. Since his first election, Boren's office has worked on over 5,000 cases on behalf of Oklahomans including veterans, senior citizens, and their families.

Once re-elected, Congressman Boren will continue his advocacy for the needs of rural communities, the rights of the individual, and hopes of all citizens in the Second District. He looks forward to seeing you out on the campaign trail this summer and fall as he meets with constituents across eastern Oklahoma.
