Mailer #1 Serving the People






























Press Announcement Regarding Intent to Run for Oklahoma House District 4 in 2020

Bob Ed Culver wants YOU to know he is running for Oklahoma state representative!

A Tahlequah native, Bob Ed Culver announces he will be a candidate for state representative District 4 in 2020. He is a longtime businessman, father, grandfather, community servant and cattleman.

“We need a representative who will go to work for our schools, our jobs, our health care, our main street business owners, our university, our skill centers, and our lakes and rivers. We have very large employers in our county and need a proven leader who will listen and pursue their goals at the Capitol,” Culver said.

“This is about making certain that our tax burden is low but fair across the board. We need more dollars in classrooms here in Cherokee County, more for rural roads and highways, more in the pockets of taxpayers and less at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City. This is about BIG ideas and getting BIG things done for Cherokee County.”

Culver, who is affectionately known as “Big Ed,” has been in community leadership for 31 years, and public service is engrained deep into who he is. He said friends encouraged him to run because he is an experienced and proven leader with common sense. He is ready to make the commitment to serve the people of Cherokee County.

Culver was a co-captain and scholar athlete for the Oklahoma Sooner football team under legendary coach Barry Switzer. He was inducted into the Tahlequah High School Athletic Hall of Fame and the Tahlequah High School Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2016.

He is the son of Jo Ellen and the late Rep. Bob Ed Culver Sr., a longtime area lawmaker.

“My parents taught all four of their kids a strong work ethic, to give back, and to dream big. That’s exactly what I did after graduating from Tahlequah High School in 1976. I’ve worked hard, raised a family, and have always been a servant to people, both in my church and in the community where I live.

Culver, and his wife of 37 years, Julie, a retired schoolteacher, have three married children, and five grandchildren. They have always chosen to live and stay active in their hometowns. Born and raised in Tahlequah, Culver maintained ties with the community while running an independent oil and gas business in Canadian, Texas, his wife’s hometown.

Bob Ed and Julie moved back to Tahlequah in 2015.  They volunteer and/or support many Cherokee County organizations including:  Cherokee County Cattleman’s and Cattle Women’s Associations, Tahlequah Area Chamber of Commerce, Friend’s of the Library, STIR, Cherokee County Retired Teacher’s Association, TACO (Tenkiller Area Community Organization), Thompson House, CASA, Help in Crisis, Habitat for Humanity, Care Food Pantry, and the NSU President’s Circle.  They are members of the Tahlequah First United Methodist Church. Bob Ed is a member of the NORA (Northeastern Oklahoma Regional Alliance) Leadership Class 2019 and is a Tahlequah Community Fund board member.

“I don’t care if you are a Republican, Independent, Libertarian, or Democrat, I want to work with you to represent your interests.  A representative in the majority party will have a seat at the table to make the decisions that could benefit all of us in Cherokee County.”   

“Voters in Cherokee County need to understand that they deserve more than a part-time representative continually voting ‘no’ and getting nothing done. We need a state representative who shows up to work instead of missing 1 out of every 4 votes.  We need a representative that will cross party lines to negotiate and make things happen.”

“More important than my party, I’m all about BIG leadership, BIG heart and BIG service,” he said. “I believe common sense and cooperation get it done.”
