He began his service in local government six years ago, and since that time has been involved in the managing, directing, and budgeting of a department within the Tulsa County Assessor’s office. As a result of his efforts, the department has an improved efficiency and higher productivity rate. Prior to his career in public service, Don spent several years in the mortgage industry. His work as the Vice President of Sales resulted in 48 million dollars in sales for the company; and his development of a “workflow analysis” system made it possible for the company to track and analyze the effect of the company’s marketing strategies and sales. In his spare time, and on the weekends, Don serves as a volunteer in many areas. He has spent countless hours teaching Sunday School in the Youth Department of his church, mentoring teens, working with troubled youth at the Tulsa County Juvenile Justice Center, and helping the elderly in his community. Don’s loyalty and commitment to his family, church, and community is part of what draws people to him. He works diligently to serve those around him, and inspires the same in everyone he meets.
