Larry Boggs:  District 7. Oklahoma State Senator. Republican.

Oklahoma Politicians – Whose FOR or AGAINST legalization of Marijuana

Larry Boggs:  District 7. Oklahoma State Senator. Republican.

Larry Boggs: District 7. Oklahoma State Senator. Republican.

It seems that Oklahomans are geared up to get marijuana legalized, as over a thousand prepares to converge on the State capital on Feb. 12, 2014 for Lobby Day & Rally to Legalize Marijuana.  So yesterday, I called office of my Oklahoma state senator – Larry Boggs (District 7), to find out if he supports SB 2116 (Legalization of Marijuana) and to ask for his support of the same.  His office was extremely evasive which forced me to belabor questions to get answers.  His office (Anna was person I spoke to) told me that they can not discuss such matters outside of the office.  I reminded her that I am a constituent in his district. By the way Boggs is republican and so am I.

I informed Boggs’ office that I wanted him to support SB 2116.  His office said that Boggs don’t feel the bill would come up for a vote.  I asked the question as to why he felt that way, and the response was that Boggs was informed of this by others.  I asked several times who are the “others” and the response was that the “others” were identified as his “colleagues”.  When I asked for the names of these colleagues, I did not receive a single name.  I’m not sure what was meant by the term “colleagues”.

When I asked how would I know what Boggs position was on the SB 2116, the response was “When he hits that red button to cast his vote”.  I felt I have a right to know how he’s leaning, and I communicated those feelings to his office.

This is very frustrating to me when I can not get straight answers from the politician who represents me.  I feel I am entitled to know his position on these matters.  The phone conversation with his office was like pulling teeth.

Its time to start making list of names of every politician in Oklahoma who is either for or against legalization of marijuana.  I get the feeling there is ducking and dodging going on with this legalization issue, and it needs to be called out.

SB 2116 is an Oklahoma senate bill that was introduced by State Senator Constance Johnson to legalize marijuana.

State Senator Larry Boggs (republican) is a Vietnam veteran.  He represents the following counties in Oklahoma:  Haskel, Hughes, Latimer, Okfuske, and Pittsburg.  Medium age in his district is 39.6 and it seems he represents more people under the age of 44 than any other age group.

Oklahoma GOP Candidate Larry Boggs says GOP is in CONTROL.

Oklahoma GOP candidate Larry Boggs telling SE Oklahoma voters that GOP is in CONTROL. Either vote for him or GOP senate wont let Citizens have voice about their water.

Larry Boggs, republican candidate for Oklahoma state senate tells SE Oklahoma voters that the GOP is in control & that unless we vote for a GOP senator, then the GOP controlled state senate are not gonna approve our water rights bill nor hear our voices. SE Oklahoma near McAlester area is mostly democrat.

The frightening part of all this is that the subject matter Boggs was referring to was about SE Oklahomans water rights Bill. I dont like my water being held hostage like this.

Larry Boggs is the republican nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat). Bogg’s opponent is J. Paul Lane, the democratic nominee. Election is November 6, 2012.

After a political candidate forum, voter – Ray Miller responded that he will vote for Democrat state senate Paul Lane instead of GOP Larry Boggs.   I was surprised to hear that Larry Boggs had got w/US senator Jim Inhofe to get his (Boggs) farm removed from the tax rolls by having his farm designated as an eagle sanctuary. Miller said that this happened in Latimer county & that it had huge impact on school in Panola, Oklahoma. Miller also added there are no eagles there near Inhofe’s farm.

Considering that Boggs farm was removed from tax roll, according to Miller, he stressed that this hurt the school & therefore Miller doubted Bogg’s sincerity that he would help the schools.

Note: Larry Boggs was the former director of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau. Jim Inhofe, a republican, who is the US senator for Oklahoma, is well known for his non-environmental friendly positions.

Paul Lane doesn’t feel that SE Oklahoma water should be sold to Texas & OKC area as its in the interest of SE Oklahoma economic development to keep it’s water.  He added that SE Oklahoma should have a voice on how its water is to be used, and that presently SE Oklahoma has NO say in the matter .  Paul said that if elected  he would file a companion bill w/state senator Brian Renagar (D-OK  House District 17) status to make sure we have regional water boards, so that SE Oklahoman  have a voice.

Lane’s opponent who is GOP nominee Larry Boggs at this political candidate forum did not offer any solution , but he did agree w/ Lane’s solution, but that SE Oklahoma had better vote for a Republican or we in SE Oklahoma will get no water rights because the republicans are in control.

The moderator’s question posed to J. Paul Lane was:  “The possible sale of SE Oklahoma water to Texas & Oklahoma City area still remains unresolved. What is your stance on selling SE Oklahoma water to Texas & OKC area & if there is anything you can do to reinforce what you think should or should not be done regarding the matter ?”.

J. Paul Lane is the democrat nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat).  Lane’s opponent is Larry Boggs the Republican nominee.  Election is November 6, 2012.

Pittsburg county voter expressed GOP senate candidate Larry Boggs angered him because he felt Boggs lied about Obama’s would abolish 2nd amendment rights if relected. And that Boggs tried to make a connection between the 2. This voter said that Obama does not have the power to abolish the 2nd amendment. He added that Mr. Boggs was a “radical right wing republican” doing a red herring.
