City leader announces for House District 45

NORMAN — A community leader who has spent her life working for Norman and Oklahoma announced that she will enter the race for Oklahoma House of Representatives District 45.

“I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and work for Norman at the State Capitol,” Claudia Griffith said. “I’m not a partisan politician or rubber stamp for anyone. This is an opportunity for me to continue serving the community I love.”

Griffith and her husband, Jim, have been married 42 years. Together, they have built a successful dental practice in Norman. She is a registered nurse with a master’s degree in public health from the University of Oklahoma.

Griffith was Norman Regional Hospital’s first full-time patient education coordinator. She worked at the Cleveland County Health Department and was a program consultant at Oklahoma University Health Promotions, working with Native American tribes all over the United States on health issues.

She is a former executive director of Health for Friends.

Griffith was one of the first Oklahomans to volunteer as a responder in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.

“My faith and my commitment to Norman families and small businesses will be my priority in the state Legislature,” Griffith said. “Our state needs unique and diverse leaders who are in touch with the lives of everyday Oklahomans.”

House District 45 is in east Norman. It is represented by Aaron Stiles and is up for re-election in November 2014.
