The Oklahoma Public Employees Political Action Committee (OPEPAC) recently announced the endorsement of Sen. Roger Thompson in the race for Senate District 8. OPEPAC is the political action committee for the Oklahoma Public Employees Association (OPEA). It endorses candidates who have supported state employees and retirees in the past or whose candidacy demonstrates that improving state employment and core state services are a top priority for them.
“We endorse Sen. Thompson because his voting record shows a commitment to improving state employment and state agency services,” said OPEA Executive Director Sterling Zearley. “Our members are glad to support candidates like Sen. Thompson. We look forward to helping him win in November and working further with him on issues important to state employees.
Established in 1976, OPEA is comprised of approximately 8,000 active or retired state agency employees across Oklahoma working to improve state employment and the services provided by state agencies.
