Senator Cal Hobson has been
endorsed by the Oklahoma Education Association
(OEA) because of his consistent support for
teachers, students, and innovative instruction.
Roy Bishop, OEA President had these remarks: "We
need someone in the lieutenant governor's office
who can demonstrate the leadership and skill to
further enhance Oklahoma's education system.
Sen. Hobson has demonstrated his ability to stand
up and let the voice of education be heard."
Cal has also been endorsed
by the Oklahoma Public Employees Association
(OPEA) in a press conference at the state
capitol on June 28th. Senator Hobson has worked
tirelessly to make sure that Oklahoma public employees
earn competitive wages during his tenure in the
Senate. Long opposed by the House Republican leadership,
many public employees including corrections officers
finally received pay raises as a result of Cal
Hobson's efforts at the capitol.
The Sierra Club has also
endorsed Cal Hobson for Lt. Governor. In a letter
publicizing the endorsement, Chairman Charles
Wesner said, "As a legislator Cal's steadfast
commitment to the protection of Oklahoma's waters
and natural environment over the years has been
extraordinary. The Sierra Club is deeply grateful."
The Sierra Club is a political committee devoted
to the preservation of Oklahoma's vast natural
resources, including our state's many lakes, rivers,
and wildlife refuges.
