2nd Congressional District, a vast space of land
spanning 25 counties and hundreds of communities,
faces many unique challenges at the dawn of a new
century to preserve our small town values and faith
in Oklahoma. Dan Boren is running for Congress to
fight for our values and to improve the way of life
weve grown to love. Boren firmly believes
that if you work hard and play by the rules than
you ought to have the opportunity to succeed
no matter whom you are or where you come from.
Dan believes the biggest hurdle Eastern Oklahoma
must clear to survive and thrive in a 21st Century
Economy is to fight to bring quality jobs back to
our part of the state. However, new businesses wont
come and existing businesses cant expand unless
we take the necessary steps to improve our public
schools and expand access
to affordable health care.
Working together with local businesses, Native Americannations,
Chambers of Commerce, and community leaders from
all walks of life Dan Boren believes that we can
make the 2nd District better for the future by creating
jobs, protecting schools and improving the access
and affordability of health care in Eastern Oklahoma.

schools during the worst state financial crisis
since the Great Depression. This past year he helped
pass legislation giving teachers landmark pay raises
and dramatic benefit increases, and successfully
fought against cuts for rural fire departments.
His work in the state legislature to pass tougher
penalties for Meth dealers and manufacturers
has become a national model to confront this deadly
is the only 2nd District Congressional candidate
with detailed plans to get our economy moving again
while keeping valuable promises made to senior citizens
and public schools. This page serves as a valuable
resource to provide insight into Dans record
as a legislature and his vision for our district.
