Edmond Democratic Women’s Position on Oklahoma’s Education Crisis:
Edmond Democratic Women (EDW) is committed to making Oklahoma a dynamic and prosperous state, now and in the future, with opportunity for all. Education is the cornerstone to secure and perpetuate success and prosperity through an informed, independent and self-reliant citizenry. Investment in education is an investment in Oklahoma’s future.
EDW believes, at a minimum, Oklahoma must restore the 7% Gross Production Tax and implement recurring and sustainable economic policies to fund a thriving public education system.
EDW strongly supports public education, including the teachers, support staff and resources. EDW will continue to support ideas and candidates who are committed to public education and its importance to Oklahoma.
The Edmond Democratic Women’s club was formed after the 2016 election by a small group of less than twenty like-minded women. Since that time, EDW has grown to nearly 300 members and continues to grow each month. EDW devotes its time and resources to the support and recruitment of candidates, education, communication, advocacy and membership growth.
