Meet Al McAffrey
Candidate for Congress - Oklahoma's 5th District
Al McAffrey has spent a lifetime serving others and working to better the lives of those around him. The son of a Baptist minister, Al grew up a proud citizen of Choctaw Nation in Sulphur, Oklahoma. The values he learned as a child taught him the importance of public service. After high school, Al enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served as a Navy Corpsman. When he returned to Oklahoma, Al joined the Oklahoma City Police Department and later went on to own and operate several successful small businesses.
As a father of three, Al understands the importance of fighting to move Oklahoma forward – that’s what he’s spent his life doing. Whether it was taking care of his fellow sailors, protecting our community as a police officer, or fighting for his constituents on the floor of the State Senate, his neighborhood association, at church, or at home with his family, Al works to bring positive change to Oklahoma.
Al McAffrey has championed issues in the State Legislature that touch the lives of his highly diverse district in Oklahoma City where he has lived, worked, and raised children for four decades.
Al has worked in the State Legislature to bring more jobs to Oklahoma, strengthen our public schools and fight for better access to affordable health care. He has been a strong advocate in supporting and protecting Oklahoma’s public safety, economic development, public transportation, and its thriving arts community. Above all, Al has kept his commitment to honesty, fairness, and hard work.
We need Al fighting for us in Washington, D.C. He believes that every Oklahoman deserves their voice to be heard. They deserve a representative who can put partisan politics aside and do what is right for them. Al has the unique experience and proven track record of service to go to our nation’s capital to do just that.
