Nancy Rathbun, Vice Mayor and Commissioner for the City of Ponca City, has suspended her campaign for Oklahoma House of Representatives District 37.
“It has become clear to me that at this time, seeking political office is not in the best interest of my children or myself,” Rathbun wrote in her announcement. “I know that you, my supporters, will be understanding and respect my decision to prioritize my family over political ambitions.”
Rathbun has served her community as an elected official on the Ponca City Commission for the past three years. The City has enjoyed growth, developed, and maintained a strong and healthy financial standing during her tenure despite the contraction in sales tax revenues.
Rathbun is a Trustee for the Ponca City Development Authority, and believes in the value of diversifying Oklahoma’s economy and revenue sources.
