Chris Kidd of Waurika and Toni Hasenbeck of Elgin answered questions from the crowd regarding what they plan to do if elected, and highlighting their differences. Hasenbeck pointed to her professional background, and hopes that experience will help her serve the district well at the State Capitol.
"I think I've had a tremendous amount of life experience and work experience, that's varied from being a school librarian to being a business owner. And every day, I have to put myself into other people's shoes to get through my day, and make sure that I'm doing the right thing for them," Hasenbeck said.
Kidd also touted his professional experience as an educator and a rancher, and believes his most recent role with the Oklahoma Farm Bureau makes him especially suited to meet the needs of the rural residents of the district.
