Wheat Farmer Senator Roland Pederson Seeking Second Term in the Oklahoma Senate

Mon, 29 Jun 2020 06:08:41 CDT

Wheat Farmer Senator Roland Pederson Seeking Second Term in the Oklahoma Senate Oklahoma Senator Roland Pederson is one of a handful of farmers who has made the regular drive from his farm near Burlington to the State Capitol over the last four years. Pederson is running for a second term in District 19- hoping to build the experience he has gained from his first term as a State Senator.

After finishing wheat harvest earlier this month- Pederson has been busy knocking on doors and making other campaign appearances in Enid and several surrounding communities. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays caught up with Pederson over the weekend- just ahead of the Tuesday, June 30th Primary. Pederson is being challenged in the GOP Primary by David Mason.

Pederson says he has come across a lot of folks in his district that have already voted- no surprise given the worries of COVID 19 across the country. The Republican Senator says that 2020 has been a tough year in Oklahoma government- with the Pandemic short circuiting much of the regular process of making laws at the State Capitol- and forcing multiple adjustments in the state budget for the current fiscal year and into the new fiscal year that starts July first.

Pederson calls his desire to run for a second term a "calling" and that he is convinced that his first four years has prepared him to be even more effective for his District and the State of Oklahoma if he wins the Primary and then the general election later this year.
