Ally Seifried has earned her spot into the Republican runoff for state Senate District 2 after finishing in the top two in the Primary Election. It’s a quick turnaround as the runoff election is August 23. “I’m so grateful for the supporters who voted in the Primary. I’m honored to have earned their vote, and I humbly ask for their vote again on August 23rd.” Ally describes herself as a strong, passionate conservative with the business sense, political experience, and community knowledge to make a difference for Oklahoma. “I have two years of legislative experience at the State Capitol. I know what it takes to fight for traditional values and put Oklahoman interests first,” said Seifried. With family roots going back to the 1850s and predating Rogers County, Seifried is a ninth-generation Oklahoman. She was born & raised in Claremore and is a proud member of the Warren family. She graduated from Claremore Christian and accepted an athletic scholarship to play women’s basketball at Rogers State University where she earned a degree in political science. “While I was a student at Rogers State, I met my husband, JP Seifried, who was on the men’s baseball team.” The couple were married in October of 2016 and attend DestinyLife Church. When asked what she wants to accomplish as state Senator, Ally said, “I will work to defend constituents from federal government overreach and mandates, empower parents to make the best decisions for their children and increase economic development in the area.” She’s also pro-life and pro-Second Amendment. “At last count, my family owns eight small businesses in the district,” said Seifried. “I know the challenges they face, and I will work to reduce unnecessary regulations and job-killing red tape. All the businesses are in different sectors, but they are all experiencing the affects of the bad policies from D.C.” The businesses include construction, chiropractic, accounting, heat & air, printing, a veterinarian, and two restaurants. The boundaries of Senate District Two were recently changed due to the 2020 census and now include most of Claremore, Verdigris, Catoosa, in addition to, parts of Owasso and Collinsville. “Most people don’t know, but while campaigning, I have still been working my full-time job at Müllerhaus Legacy. We are a small business that creates custom history books and heritage preservation projects so future generations understand the value of their legacy. I started door-knocking in November, and I could not have campaigned as hard as I did without their complete support.” Ally said that after the election she will continue to work at Müllerhaus. Previously, Ally worked as the development specialist for Safenet Services, a nonprofit that helps victims of domestic and sexual abuse in Rogers and Mayes Counties, and at the State Capitol for former Sen. Dan Newberry. When asked what sets her apart, Ally said, “I’m from here, I know the people, and I have the skill set. I’m willing to step forward and make a difference. Our values matter. Additionally, our district is growing. Having grown up here, I’ve witnessed it personally. I do not want us to go backwards, I want us to grow and move forward. I believe Oklahoma’s best days are in front of us, but only if we stand strong. It would be an honor to serve the people of this community at the State Capitol.” The date to vote in the Republican runoff is August 23rd, 2022.
