Senate Pro Tem Greg Treat
Ponca City, OK –
Senator Greg Treat will Roast his good friend Senator Bill Coleman at the upcoming Pioneer Technology Center Foundation Dinner on November 3. Treat was elected in 2011 in a special election to represent District 47, which encompasses northwest Oklahoma City and portions of Edmond, Deer Creek, and Bethany.
After graduating from Catoosa High School, Treat attended the University of Oklahoma earning a Political Science and History Degree. He graduated with honors and earned an invitation to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Treat also was awarded the Cortez A.M. Ewing Fellowship while at OU, which allowed him to intern for then-U.S. Rep. Tom Coburn, M.D., in Washington, D.C.
Prior to being elected to the Senate, Treat worked as the legislative director for the Oklahoma House Republican Caucus, and worked on a number of successful campaigns, including serving as the regional director for Coburn’s successful 2004 U.S. Senate campaign. Treat served as state government liaison and field representative for Senator Coburn, and then worked as director of the Republican get-out-the-vote effort in the 2010 election cycle.
In 2021, he was unanimously re-elected by the Oklahoma Senate to serve as President Pro Tempore, the top leadership position in the Senate. Treat was first elected as Pro Tem by the Senate in 2019. He previously served as the Senate Majority Floor Leader, as an Assistant Majority Floor Leader, and also has served as the Majority Whip.
“I am honored Bill asked me to be one of the roasters. I look forward to sharing some stories about Senator Coleman’s time at the Capitol. I am pretty sure the audience will be unaware of some of the Senator’s not-so-brilliant moves at the Capitol. It will all be in fun, but I will be sure to make fun of him, a lot,” remarked Senator Treat.
He and his wife Maressa reside in northwest Oklahoma City where they attend Frontline Church with their three children: Mason, Cooper, and Olivia who all attend public schools.
