Oklahoma Senate Democrats Choose Senator
John Sparks as Leader
The Democrats of the Oklahoma State Senate have
chosen Sen. John
Sparks as leader of the Democratic Caucus. Sparks, of Norman,
will succeed Sen. Randy Bass of Lawton. Sparks will take over from
Bass as of this week.
“We are all grateful for Sen. Bass’ leadership this
past session. His commitment to Democratic ideals is remarkable
and his strong legislative efforts on behalf of Oklahoma’s
children and families have been significant,” Sparks said.
“I am proud to be able to take on this challenge. The Democratic
Caucus provides contrast where it is needed; we ask the hard questions;
we shine light on the dark spaces; and we hold the Republicans accountable.
We all look forward to working with our fellow Democrats as we continue
our efforts to create opportunity and promise for hard-working Oklahomans
and their families.”
