Priorities for Alizadeh-Fard, the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, include transparency, integrity and aptitude. This is a statewide race which will be on every voter’s ballot on November 8.

She is a fifth generation Oklahoman whose broad career experience includes work as an immigration attorney, general counsel, social worker, administrative law judge, cashier, waitress and photographer.

“Accountability has been sorely lacking in the lieutenant governor’s office and the current Administration in general,” Alizadeh-Fard said. “Corruption, misogyny and mean-spirited legislation have been their hallmark, and that must change.”

She earned a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University and a law degree from the Oklahoma City University school of law in 1999.

Jeremiah Ross is the Democratic candidate for Congress in District 3, which includes Canadian County and extends west from Tulsa to the Panhandle and diagonally south from Tulsa to the southwest corner of the state.

Ross is an attorney specializing in immigration, criminal defense and personal injury.

He earned a bachelor’s of arts degree in political science and government, at the University of Oklahoma and law degree from Gonzaga University School of Law in Spokane, Washington.

The Canadian County Democrats meet at 7 p.m. on the second Monday of each month, except December, at the Yukon Police Department, 100 S. Ranchwood Boulevard. The meetings are also live streamed on Zoom and Facebook at
