LOCAL BUSINESSWOMAN MERIDETH VANSANT ANNOUNCES RUN FOR CONGRESS
Successful businesswoman Merideth VanSant today announced as a candidate for the Republican nomination for the 5th Congressional District. The 5th District includes most of Oklahoma County including Oklahoma City and Edmond as well as Pottawatomie and Seminole Counties.
"Central Oklahoma needs a representative in DC who can best defend our local conservative values," said VanSant. "I will be the loudest and rowdiest voice for our families. I'm fed up with our area not having a seat in the national conversation."
A product of our Oklahoma public schools, Merideth VanSant was an award-winning business management consultant before starting her own successful business. VanSant has been a featured keynote speaker on business issues, a former U.S. Delegate at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit representing the Trump Administration, and the co-founder of a social enterprising company that serves inner city youth.
"I've witnessed first-hand the transformational power that good jobs can have in breaking the cycle of poverty," said VanSant. "I'm running to get big government out of our lives, cut bad taxes and regulations, provide good local jobs, strengthen our public schools, protect innocent life, ensure greater access to low-cost preventative healthcare, and defend our 2nd Amendment rights."
"I'm reaching out to every voter to hear what they want to see done for their families. It can be done and it's the kind of representation we need," said VanSant.
Merideth is also a highly involved member of the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce, supporter of the Edmond Chamber of Commerce, and Leadership OKC Class 37. She lives in her hometown of Oklahoma City with her family. They attend Life.Church Oklahoma City.
