    I fully support Darren Gantz as our next Tulsa County Tax Assessor because he is the most qualified and experienced person for the position. He has assessed home values and saved people thousands of dollars by fair valuations of their property. He also goes above and beyond to show people how to save money and become more efficient in their businesses. Darren has many years experience at shrinking costs and streamlining services for efficiency and cost-saving measures. He will continue to do so when elected.

    Tulsa County -

    Please get in touch with Darren Gantz and help him win this race for County Assessor! Darren is a great leader, fair, honest and smart! He will be a great asset for Tulsa County. Property tax is a vital part of our funding for local government and Darren will provide the leadership needed to run the office with wisdom!

    I have known businessman Darren Gantz for a number of years. He has worked tirelessly to help elect many conservative Republicans to win elections in Oklahoma. Now he wants to bring his conservative principles, education(MBA in Finance) and business smarts to the Tulsa County Assessor’s office. Now more than ever we need a conservative business approach to government. I am proud to give him my support and endorsement.

    Senator James Leewright, District 12

    Chairman of the Business and Commerce Committee


    Senator James Leewright was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 2014 and in 2016 was elected to the Oklahoma State Senate. He represents Creek and parts of Tulsa counties.


    Sen. Leewright and his wife Cari have four children and are both native Oklahomans who have a small farm near Kellyville and are members of the First Baptist Church of Bristow. James holds a BS from Oklahoma State University and MBA studies from Oklahoma City University.


    After working for a Fortune 500 company for many years in oil and natural gas commodity trading, James decided to focus on his small business in Sapulpa, Dynamic Restoration, which he has grown into one of the most respected restorations and construction businesses in Oklahoma. After 17 years in business, Sen. Leewright sold Dynamic to allow him to focus on serving District 12. Because of that experience, Sen. Leewright is keenly aware of the challenges small and large businesses face as they strive to grow and is committed to ensuring no undue burdens are placed on Oklahoma businesses that provide jobs, economic growth, and a broader tax base.


    As a small business owner, James was named Entrepreneur of the Year for Creek County in 2007 and one of Oklahoma’s Top 40 Under 40 Professionals in the State by Oklahoma Magazine.


    James has been a Big Brother for Big Brothers and Big Sisters, served on the Board of Directors, Executive Board and was past President of the Sapulpa Chamber of Commerce. He is also past President of the Sapulpa Ambassadors. James has received two citations from the Oklahoma House of Representatives for civic and business accomplishments.


    As a legislator, Senator Leewright was named to leadership positions in the House, which is rare for a first-term legislator. In leadership, James was appointed asst-whip and served as vice chair for Banking and Financial Services. James also served on Higher Ed and Career Tech, Government Oversight and Accountability and Appropriations and Budget for Transportation committee. In the Senate, as a freshman Senator, he was named Chairman of the Business, Commerce and Tourism Committee and also serves on the Appropriations Subcommittee on Natural Resources as well as on the Retirement and Insurance, and Transportation Committees.
