About Dan
Inspired to politics as a youth, Dan Boren has built an impressive record as a strong proponent for Oklahomans and as an advocate for responsive, responsible government. Boren was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives at age 29 after defeating an eight-year incumbent, one of the youngest non-incumbents to be elected in 2002. Following his election, he was elected as the incoming Caucus Chairman by his fellow House Democrats - the first freshman state lawmaker to ever receive this honor.

As a member of the State House leadership team, Boren has focused on bringing jobs and economic opportunities to his district. Working hand in hand with Governor Brad Henry, Boren fought to protect economic assistance for Oklahoma's rural communities by saving the Rural Economic Action Plan from budget cuts. He also fought to spare rural schools from crippling budget blows by serving as the primary co-author of legislation that infused much needed dollars into Oklahoma's schools without raising taxes.

Prior to his career in public service, Boren served as the President and CEO of the Seminole State College Educational Foundation. Boren worked as a senior aide at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and held staff positions for former U.S. Congressman Wes Watkins. Boren has experience in oil and banking industries. He is involved in numerous organizations and is an avid outdoorsman and hunter.

Dan Boren, 30, was born in Shawnee and has strong ties to Eastern Oklahoma. He lives in Okfuskee County in the rural community of Paden. In 1997 he earned a B.S. in Economics. He went on to obtain an M.B.A. from the University of Oklahoma. Boren and his sister, Carrie, were born to former Governor and Senator David L. Boren and the late Janna L. Robbins of Madill. Boren's stepmother is Molly Shi Boren of Ada. Boren's stepfather, John Robbins, lives in Longview, TX. His grandfather, Lyle H. Boren, represented southeastern Oklahomans in the U.S. Congress from 1937-47.
