Statement on Boren Announcement to Not Seek Re-election

June 8, 2011

— 08 June, 2011 —

     Yesterday afternoon Rep. Dan Boren announced he would not seek re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives for Oklahoma’s 2nd. Congressional District.  Rep. Boren had been elected to four consecutive terms to serve the interests of the good, hard-working citizens of Eastern Oklahoma and, I believe, in his mind he truly believed he worked toward this end and each election victory he secured served to reinforce that belief.  Rep. Boren served the citizens of Eastern Oklahoma, but, I do not believe he served them well.

     I actually like Dan Boren…you can’t help but like him.  I disliked Rep. Dan Boren as a representative of We, the people in Oklahoma’s 2nd. Congressional district as his actions (votes), more often than not, did not represent the values and principles of OUR nations founding which mirror the values and principles of the citizens of Eastern Oklahoma.  With that being said, and from Rep. Boren’s perspective, he did SERVE in a very trying position during very contentious times…for that I offer my appreciation and wish Dan Boren and his family nothing but the best in the days ahead.

     In the hours leading up to Rep. Boren’s official announcement, and persisting up to the writing of this statement, I have received over a hundred communications inquiring about the road ahead.  I truly believe OKD2 will become a Republican pick-up come Nov. 2012.  Several potential Republican candidates have already begun to appear in the public domain.  Former State Representative Tad Jones, Freshman State Senator Josh Brecheen, and current State House Representative George Faught (who has formed an Exploratory Committee) are among them. 

     This upcoming election season will bring a national political spotlight to OKD2, and deservedly so, the likes of which we have never seen.  After a total absence of National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) involvement in OKD2 during the past decade-plus, the NRCC began, two months ago, with robocalls targeting Boren’s district that signaled their intent to carry through with a promise which failed to come to fruition this last election cycle.  With Boren removed from consideration, Oklahoma’s slate of elected Republicans will now be free to support a Republican for this open seat.

     Over the past several months myself  and members of the campaign have been asked as to my aspirations regarding this congressional seat.  With the recent announcement, those questions have become a bit more persistent.  My answer now is the same as it was six months ago:  I have no plans to seek the Republican party nomination for U.S. Congress to represent Oklahoma’s 2nd. Congressional District.  We believe that efforts to restore constitutional government, openness, accountability, government restraint, fiscal responsibility, systemic prosperity rather than systemic decline, expansion of Freedom, and individual Liberty can best be focused by utilizing many of the other very important avenues.

     I look forward to the upcoming campaign season which will most assuredly culminate in the election of a true constitutional conservative to represent the wonderful folks of Oklahoma District 2…a representative OF the people which We, the people of Eastern Oklahoma require, deserve, and demand.

May God continue to Bless each and every one us

Thank you,

Howard Houchen

Rep. Dan Boren (D) OK-D2 will have NO Public TownHalls During the 6 Week Recess

August 10, 2010
 
       It appears as if Mr. Blued-Hog himself (Rep. Dan Boren) will, once again, be holding NO Public invited Town Hall events in his district during this 6-week Congressional recess. No, Mr. “I Listen to the People” will instead be holding “Civic Meetings”. This information comes from his Washington office. The Boren Campaign office in Muskogee (excuse, me…his Congressional District office in Muskogee) said they are unaware of his schedule.

       This “Civic Meetings” terminology is not new for Mr. Boren. In order to avoid actually facing people who may disagree with him or who actually have questions about many of his very-liberal votes in support of the Pelosi agenda, Mr. Boren travels the district (infrequently) to attend “invitation only” events. The Boren camp will call a town’s Chamber of Commerce, usually with less than 48 hour notice, and ask the Chamber to invite members as well as local civic clubs (Rotary, Lions, etc.) to a location where Mr. Boren will show up. These “civic meetings” will last from 45 minutes to an hour with no public notification, thus affording the general citizenry no opportunity to address their supposed Representative in Washington.

       This Political-Class behavior has been evident for quite some time. Mr. Boren has held only three public Town Halls over the past year and all three of those were held during a single 8 hour period on a single day back in August 2009. Since that time Mr. Boren has done all he can to avoid scrutiny in public.

       Once again the Political-Class call the shots and we, the working class, just let it slide right on by. After all, we are just the working-class…we are not worthy of our voices being heard in public.  Are we not ELITE enough to converse directly with the Political-Class?

       Come on Mr. Boren, this behavior cannot be tolerated; You have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to convince the hard-working citizens of Eastern Oklahoma that you “Listen to the People” yet you offer no opportunity for this interaction to occur. Instead of “securing funds” (spending more of our money), please listen to We, the people.
