Poteau Educator, Chris Ford and former candidate for State Senate, District 4, recently announced his support for Eddie Martin, who received the Democratic nomination for State Senate District 4.


Eddie Martin lives in Sallisaw and have been raised a Democrat in District #4 his whole life.


Eddie has worked as a social worker in child welfare with the State of Oklahoma.


He was appointed Sequoyah County Election Board Secretary by Senator Larry Dickerson. “I was fortunate to spend a lot of time in this district working with and learning from him and I hope to continue on with many of his and Senator Kenneth Corn’s initiatives and priorities,” said Martin.

According to Eddie Martins Platform

“Education is one of the most important keys to success we can give them. We must work, support and fight for our schools and teachers and not just the big schools – our small schools, which are the backbone of so many communities, are just as important.”


“We have to support and invest in our Rural Fire Departments. Our firefighters are our first line of defense in our rural areas – whether it’s a structure or grass fire, automobile accidents, medical call or search and rescue during a flood or tornado... our dedicated volunteers are there for us! The men and women who give of themselves to volunteer for the protection of our communities are heroes. I will always do everything in my power to see that they have the means that they need in order to protect our communities and our families.”


“I am an advocate for the developmentally disabled. There are so many individuals, children and adults that need help - over 7,500 are currently on a waiting list for services – some for over 10 years. I will always stand up and fight for those that are unable to do so for themselves.”


“Infrastructure – District #4 has a lot of nice roads and bridges but unfortunately there are even more that need repairs or replacement. It is time that our district had someone like Senator Dickerson and Senator Corn to stand up and fight for and make sure we aren’t forgotten or overlooked anymore.”


“I am a proud supporter of our active military and veterans. I respect them and vow to always work for the Heroes across District #4 and I support the Second Amendment.”


“I support Oklahoma State Employees....they have been forgotten or ignored by so many legislators for too long.”


The general election will be held on November 6, 2018.


Polls open from 7am until 7pm on that day.
