Oklahoma AFL-CIO Endorses Mark Mann for OK State Senate Leaders from Oklahoma AFL-CIO support Mark

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (June 27, 2023) – Mark Mann today received the support and endorsement from the Oklahoma AFL-CIO. The Oklahoma AFL-CIO, created in 1957, is composed of 230 local labor unions that represent thousands of working people in Oklahoma. The AFL-CIO is made up of teachers, firefighters, bakers, engineers, pilots, public employees, doctors and nurses, painters, plumbers—and more.

“We must work to ensure all people are treated fairly with decent paychecks and benefits and equal opportunities. It’s an honor to be supported by the AFL-CIO. Senate District 46 has well over 2000 union household members who deserve a voice. We must work side by side to improve the lives of working families and help people acquire the skills and training necessary to compete and earn in the 21st Century,” said Mann.

“Mark Mann has been a supporter and partner with organized labor for over 30 years. His work on the Oklahoma City Public Schools Board of Education to bring back an emphasis on career and trade programs has been tremendous. We’re excited to support Mark because we know Mark will fight for working families and their voices will be heard,” said Jimmy Curry, President of Oklahoma AFL-CIO.

A longtime resident of Senate District 46 in Oklahoma City, Mann currently sits on the Oklahoma City Public Schools Board of Education, owns an insurance agency and previously worked for State Superintendent Sandy Garrett at the State Department of Education. He has been married to his wife, Tonya, who is a lifelong educator, since 2005. Together, they have two sons, Alexander, who is an attorney in Denver, and Andrew, a student at Classen School of Advanced Studies High School in Oklahoma City. Mann is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma.

Mann will be on the ballot in 2024, when Senator Kay Floyd leaves office due to term limits. More information can be found at
