Larry Bush cites education, control of crime and criminal justice reform, access to health care and the economy as his top concerns as he runs for the State Senate 32 seat.
There is a unifying thread in the five.
“All those issues link back to education,” he said, of the importance he places on education for the state’s youth.
Bush practices what he preaches. He has been a volunteer with Lawton Public Schools for more than 20 years, involvement he said he traces back to a realization he made while delivering his son to school one day, years ago. In addition to reading to students, Bush runs the LPS Foundation Booster Club, and has headed booster clubs at two elementary schools: Almor West and Woodland Hills.
He’s also worked with students on the athletic side of the aisle, serving as assistant coach at MacArthur High School. It was a familiar field: Bush was a four-year defensive back at the University of Oklahoma in the early 1990s.
A local businessman, Bush has been the owner of Larry Bush Insurance for more than 20 years. He also is an active member of First Baptist Church East. He and his wife have two children.
Bush also was the unsuccessful Democrat candidate for the House District 62 races in 2016 and 2018.
