Senator AJ Griffin takes oath of office in State Capitol Ceremony

Businesswoman AJ Griffin is officially on the job as the Senate’s newest member. Griffin was elected in a special election held April 3 to fill the District 20 seat, which includes Logan, Noble, Pawnee and Kingfisher counties.

“It is a humbling experience to stand in the Senate Chamber, hand on the Bible and realize the tremendous responsibility the citizens have entrusted to me, but I am also honored by that trust and excited about working with constituents and my fellow senators to help move our state forward,” said Griffin, R-Guthrie.

The Oath of Office was administered by Oklahoma State Supreme Court Chief Justice Steve Taylor during a ceremony attended by members of the Senate, supporters and family members, including Griffin’s husband, Trey, and daughters Alexandra, 13 and Reagan, 11.

Griffin and her husband own a construction material business and are also deacons in the First Christian Church. In addition, she serves as Executive Director of Logan Community Services and is a former president of the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce.

Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman welcomed Griffin to the Senate.

“Senator Griffin comes to us with a proven track record of success in the business and non-profit worlds. I'm confident she will be prepared on day one to help move Oklahoma forward with a pro-jobs, pro-growth agenda,” said Bingman, R-Sapulpa. “Her expertise in helping struggling families, along with her passion for meaningful reform at DHS, couldn't come at a more important time. She’s also a mother and a person of faith who lives the values that define the people of Oklahoma. I know she’ll do a fantastic job on behalf of the citizens of Senate District 20.”
