Yasminda Choate for House District 28
The Oklahoma Democratic Party Veterans Committee endorses Yasminda Choate for Oklahoma State Representative, District 28 (Seminole and Pottawatomie Counties). The daughter and granddaughter of USMC Veterans, she numbers many service veterans among her cousins, uncles and close friends. Concerned that Veterans in rural areas, including many with chronic conditions and mental health issues, must travel significant distance to access health care; and dismayed that too many Veterans are homeless, she is committed to accessible health care, and safe and appropriate housing for Veterans and military families. She will communicate with local healthcare practices and community organizations to better understand the issues facing Veterans.
