Maressa Treat, lifelong conservative and community advocate, announced her candidacy for Oklahoma County Clerk yesterday.
“I am running for Oklahoma County Clerk because I want to restore integrity, professionalism, and transparency to this important office,” Treat said. “With my commitment to fiscal responsibility and my diverse background as a leader in the business community, public service, and with nonprofit organizations, I am ready to go to work to protect taxpayer dollars and make county government more efficient and effective for the people.”
Maressa and her husband, Greg, live in northwest Oklahoma County with their three children, Mason, Cooper, and Olivia, who attend Deer Creek Public Schools.
A lifelong Republican, Treat most recently served as U.S. Senator James Lankford’s finance director for his successful reelection and, prior to that, in his personal office as director of state outreach. In addition to her Senate work, she acted as field representative for the College Republican National Committee and has volunteered for numerous conservative candidates and causes.
Maressa has worked as a proponent for some of Oklahoma’s largest and most important industries. Her work at the State Chamber of Oklahoma and the office of the Oklahoma Secretary of Energy taught her how government can create an environment for businesses to thrive.
Treat is a tireless community advocate who has served on several local nonprofit boards. Notably, she serves as a board member of the YWCA where she works to give a voice to victims of domestic violence.
The Republican Primary Election for Oklahoma County Clerk will be held February 14, 2023.
“Serving as the next Oklahoma County Clerk would be an honor, and I look forward to hearing from Oklahoma County residents over the course of this campaign and earning their trust and their votes,” Treat said.
