Born in Woodward, Oklahoma to a family involved in farming, ranching and the petroleum industry. Having grown up at our ranch taught me the value of a hard day’s work and instilled in me a deep sense of gratitude for the blessing of being raised in a loving family. With their support, I excelled as a college athlete at Central State University and later graduated from Oklahoma State University with honors. My career began as a Petroleum Geologist for over 10 years.
My family encouraged me to do more and be more. I worked as a law clerk while attending night law school at Oklahoma City University where I was on the Honor Roll and awarded for my work ethic and performance. During the next period of my life, I served as an administrative law judge, a consulting geologist, and ran a private law practice in Edmond, Oklahoma. Once again, my family encouraged me to do more, but this time to truly give back to Oklahoma for the opportunities it had provided me.
Since 2009, I have served as your Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner where I have worked diligently to solve issues that affect our oil and gas industry, transportation, utility rates, public safety, property and the environment. I traveled the state and have now put over 180,000 miles on my little blue truck by going to communities around Oklahoma to listen to people, to speak at events, conduct town hall meetings and visit with folks just like you. I have and will continue to travel around the state at no cost to the taxpayers simply because I feel it is the right thing to do especially during these challenging economic times facing our state. This experience has served Oklahoma well and has prepared me to serve as your lieutenant governor and move this position beyond its traditional role.
Dana Murphy is a tireless public servant. She has been a staunch supporter of business on the Corporation Commission and I believe she would be an excellent Lieutenant Governor. Please give her your vote!
Dana is what Oklahoma needs in these trying and difficult times. She has proven time and time again her strength, determination, commitment and passion for this great state. Oklahoma will continue to benefit from her incredible leadership and service. As a friend, she is most loyal and dedicated. Oklahoma will continue to be blessed with Dana as our next Lt. Governor!
Dana's the kind of leader who brings people together, who helps them find solutions to problems. That's a different approach to leadership than a lot of people take.
I've seen Dana Murphy work in the best of times and the worst of times, and I can assure you I've never seen anyone address adversity, take it on, and work through it anymore successfully than she can.
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction.
I do the best I know—the very best I can—and I mean to keep on doing it to the end.
We cannot solve our problems with the same kind of thinking that got us into the problem.
