OKLAHOMA CITY – Lifelong southwest Oklahoma City resident, small business owner, and attorney, Michael Brooks-Jimenez, announced today he is running for Oklahoma’s 44th State Senate district.
“I’m proud to announce I’m running for State Senate District 44,” Brooks-Jimenez said. “Working families, senior citizens, and teachers in southwest Oklahoma City have gone without a voice at the capitol for far too long. It’s time for someone to step up and restore the trust of voters and bring integrity back to the office.”
“We deserve honest, faithful leadership that will work across the aisle to improve the lives of everyday Oklahomans,” Brooks-Jimenez said. “Paying our teachers a living wage, funding our schools, and creating high-paying jobs shouldn’t be partisan issues. Yet that often becomes the case, and working families are the ones who ultimately pay the price.”
Brooks-Jimenez has been married to Jessica Martinez-Brooks for over 17 years. They have two children: Joaquin, 10, and Lucy, 5.
He currently attends St. James Catholic Church. A graduate of Mount St. Mary High School, Brooks-Jimenez earned his juris doctorate from the University of Oklahoma College of Law. Senate District 44 encompasses southwest Oklahoma City.
