Elect

Ruby Peters

United States House of Representatives

Oklahoma’s Fourth District

Over the past several years I’ve seen our educational system consistently deteriorate from lack of resources, unfunded mandates, High-Stakes-Testing, with school funding becoming an afterthought to Oklahoma Officials and simply not spoken about with our representatives in Washington, DC. Our elected leaders have failed in leadership abilities to meet the needs of our Public Schools, K-12 and Higher Education. The needs of our veterans, the future of health care for people with disabilities and senior citizens are not being met and plans are on the way to take what little they have now. Rural hospitals may become extinct, if we send Tom Cole back to Washington. This gentleman has done nothing except collected a check. Veterans are sick and tired of receiving his fancy form letters. All of this is fixable when they stop following the party instead of working for

the people. Tom Cole is on various committees doing what building a resume and connecting to those persons who keep his coffers filled with money to run for reelection.

In summary, I am now or have been personally touched by my platform. I’ve been in education over 40 years if it happened I saw it, accepted and tried to make it work, even if it meant funding from my pocket. My objective was to do my very best to reach and teach my students with love and respect. I’m a stakeholder!

Veteran issues are up close and personal for our family. I was the care provider for my spouse, affectionally known as B-Bear. I watched him fight through the system to get benefits he had earned, when he should have been enjoying his last days with family. I’m a stakeholder!

My mother was in in a nursing facility prior to her transition, and I currently have an Aunt in a nursing facility, where I volunteer as President of Family Council. Therefore, I’m in those facilities often and visit with residents and families. I’m a stakeholder!

Health Care we’re ALL Stakeholders!

I’ve experienced students with mother’s and father’s incarcerated and presented this concern during Delta Day at the Capitol a few years ago. This issue is critical for families and communities, but most of all children. I’m a stakeholder!

Please Note: We’re All Stakeholders in School-to-Prison-Pipeline, it starts in Kindergarten and continues throughout our children school years. This critical issue involves “Our Future- Our Children”

As an Independent Candidate, I will work for you!

My mission is to work for the people who send me to Washington and to keep them informed and involved in the decision-making process. I will seek resolutions from both sides of the aisles. The current two-party system is looking out for themselves and their re-election, not the people. Perhaps, they’re afraid or timid about speaking out and working for what is right and good for everyday Americans.

As an Independent Candidate, I ask who the real beneficiaries of the present policies are, not every day Americans. The D’s and R’s are simply unable to compromise and work together to produce workable solutions. Elect Ruby Peters for US House, Oklahoma’s Fourth District! My campaign is totally funded by me and a small donation of $750.00. Therefore, I don’t owe any outside parties, or PAC’s. I refused money from outside interest groups, except education of $750.00
