Sharon Bishop-Baldwin Incumbent
Greetings, friends! I have served on the board of directors of Oklahomans for Equality for two years now, following a one-year term on the board of advisors. Many of you know me because my wife, Mary, and I were plaintiffs in the case that brought marriage equality to Oklahoma in 2014, but I'm asking for your vote to return me to the board of directors not because of that but because of my service to the board these past three years as well as my continued commitment to making OkEq a resource and a refuge for all LGBTQ+ Oklahomans. Besides serving as secretary of the board in 2015-2016, I was a co-chair, along with Mary, of the 2016 Equality Gala. I have never missed a board meeting and have attended and volunteered at nearly every major Oklahomans for Equality function in the past three years. I so admire and appreciate not only the staff members who keep OkEq afloat day in and day out but also the scores of volunteers who do everything from staffing the front desk to emptying the trash. I also have immense respect for my fellow Board of Directors and Advisors members who put their hearts, their passion and their sweat into making the best possible decisions for the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center and our constituency -- you. We have undertaken a very successful capital campaign that is funding a major renovation of the center to allow us to serve you better, and I am excited for the opportunities that await us. As always, I promise to work hard and listen to the community about our ever-changing needs and priorities. The Revolution Continues!
