Make Oklahoma Schools Excellent: Michael firmly believes that a quality education is the key to the future success of Oklahoma’s next generation of leaders. He will be a fighter for teachers, students and parents.
Help Oklahomans by Keeping Taxes Low: Keeping more of what hard- working Oklahomans earn will help families with the rising cost of just about everything.
Much-Needed Help for Seniors: Low taxes will help seniors, especially those on fixed incomes. Michael will also work to stop the automatic property tax increases that hurt senior citizens.
Control the Size of Government: A constitutional conservative, Michael knows government cannot be all things to all people and must focus on priorities like education, public safety and infrastructure.
Develop Long-Term Stability: Reducing government waste and ensuring state government lives within its budget will bring long-term stability to Oklahoma and make our state more competitive for high-paying jobs.
High Standards: Michael supports high standards for students because he knows that by raising the bar of expectations Oklahoma children will rise to meet and exceed that bar.
Local Control is Best: Michael is a firm believer in local control for education. As both a parent and a former educator, Michael knows that nobody has a greater desire to see children succeed in school than the local community itself. Federal mandates and teaching to high stakes tests is not the best course for Oklahoma’s students.
"Michael Rogers knows that government doesn’t create jobs, the private sector does. Like me, Michael isn’t interested in being a politician. He just wants to make Oklahoma a better place for his children and all of our children.”
– U.S. Representative Markwayne Mullin (OK-2)
