Luttrell to run for State Representative

Former State Rep. Ken Luttrell has announced he intends to seek the District 37 House of Representatives seat as a Republican.
Luttrell previously held the post as a Democrat. He said he changed his affiliation earlier to vote in the sheriff election.
“When Nancy Rathbun decided to withdraw from the representative post, I decided to enter the primary against Rep. Steve Vaughan,” said Luttrell.
“I have listened to my fellow citizens’ concerns and at their urging have decided to run. The people and leaders of our community have had enough of politics as usual. What we need is a representative with
the courage to do what is right for our families, community and state. Real leadership is needed at the Capitol to break the log jam that currently exists,” he said.

He added Oklahoma should be poised for greatness with pro-business, pro-education, pro-family and pro-Veteran legislation instead of being stuck in budget wars and cuts that impact vulnerable citizens.
“In recent years we have seen what happens when special interest groups dictate the votes of our legislators. I will not be influenced or my votes controlled by outsiders and lobbyists, but will work for you, your children and grandchildren’s future.”

Luttrell is a U.S. Army Veteran and retired from business management. He has been married to his wife Brenda for 31 years. They have two daughters and three grandsons all living in Ponca City. The family attends First Baptist Church.
Luttrell previously served in the House of Representatives from 2006-2010 and has volunteered in the Ponca City community for over 30 years. He has served on the boards of Main Street, Literacy Council,
Education Foundation, Salvation Army, Red Cross, Kaw Lake Association, Airport Advisory Board, Ponca City Chamber and as co-chair of the Veterans Plaza project.
He currently serves on the Poncan Theater Foundation, Community Health Foundation, National Media and Communications Council of the American Legion and the Ponca City Planning Commission.
He is a member of the Ponca City Chamber, American Legion, Vietnam Veterans of America, Disabled American Veterans, Legion Riders, Elks, AMBUCS and the NRA.

He has been honored by Governors Frank Keating and Brad Henry for his work in drug, gang and violence prevention programs and for boxing programs for at-risk youth
