Christi Gillespie announced her campaign for the Republican nomination for Oklahoma’s State Senate District 33. Currently serving as vice mayor and representing Ward 3 on the Broken Arrow City Council, Gillespie is running to fill the seat that is currently held by Nathan Dahm, who cannot seek re-election due to term limits.
“I moved to Oklahoma when I was in elementary school and instantly fell in love with this community,” Gillespie explained. “I want to continue to make our region and state the best place to work, live, play and pursue your dreams.”
A long-time community volunteer and leader in Broken Arrow, Christi was elected to the Broken Arrow City Council in 2019 and became Vice Mayor in 2021. On the City Council, Christi has focused on revitalizing Broken Arrow’s economy, improving public safety, enhancing infrastructure, and upgrading city services.
“On the City Council, I’m advocating to provide our families with better opportunities and safer neighborhoods,” said Gillespie. “I will take those priorities to the State Senate and ensure that our community has a strong voice in the capitol.”
Since graduating cum laude with a degree in Mass Communications from Oklahoma Christian University, Christi has spent 30+ years in sales, most recently as the Director of Sales & Training, North America for SeneGence, International. She is currently a small business owner, consulting doctors across the state to make their businesses more profitable.
“I will use my business and sales expertise to support our small businesses and bring quality, high-paying jobs to Oklahoma,” Gillespie said. “We must reduce the tax burden for working families and small businesses and slash job-killing red tape.”
A graduate of the Broken Arrow Citizens Police Academy, Christi Gillespie is proud to stand beside Oklahoma’s law enforcement officers and other first responders. In the State Senate, she will continue the effort she started on the City Council to bring public safety districts to Broken Arrow and other communities.
“We can never repay our brave law enforcement officers and first responders for the sacrifices they make to keep us safe,” continued Gillespie. “I will always have their back.”
Christi Gillespie comes from a family of military veterans, including her husband, Michael, who is a Navy veteran. They live in Broken Arrow and have one daughter and two grandsons.
