  Last month we had a lively President Donald Trump celebration and a round table with Linda Murphy, Ronda Vuillemont-Smith, Donny Tiemann, David Tackett, and David Van Risseghem:  public education, teachers pay, and school boards were some of the topics discussed.

    In thinking about these items I reached out to Rep. Gann because of his vast knowledge of being on a local Oklahoma school board, Tulsa City auditor, and Tulsa airport auditor and asked him if he could join us.

  Republican Tom Gann, Inola  resident, auditor, business  owner and former school board  member, filed today for the  open House of Representatives  District 8 seat.     Born in Wagoner, Gann, 57, is  a lifelong resident of  northeastern Oklahoma whose  descendants settled in  Claremore in 1904.  Gann grew  up in Tahlequah where he met  Debbie, his wife of 37 years.    The Ganns live on 10 acres in  Inola. They have one son and  two daughters who are   married and have seven  grandchildren.  In 1984 Tom  built a retail business in  Fort Gibson.  The business  grew to 12 employees and  grossed over 1.5 million  annually.
