Democratic candidate seeking House District 84 seat signs Open Government Pledge

The owner of an antique media preservation business has promised “to support legislation to strengthen the letter and the spirit” of Oklahoma’s open government laws if elected to the state House District 84 seat. In signing FOI Oklahoma’s Open Government Pledge for legislative candidates, Will Hollander also promised “to support at every opportunity” the state’s public policy that “the people are vested with the inherent right to know and be fully informed about their government so that they can efficiently and intelligently exercise their inherent political power.”

Hollander faces Republican Tammy West in the Nov. 8 election. Republican incumbent Sally Kern was term-limited.

West also has signed the Open Government Pledge.

Hollander and his wife, Sherri, own a small business preserving antique media, such as films, photographs and audio cassettes, according to his campaign website.

House District 84 includes parts of Bethany, Oklahoma City, Warr Acres and Woodlawn Park.

FOI Oklahoma invites all candidates for state, local and legislative seats to sign its Open Government Pledge. Instructions and lists of signers can be found on FOI Oklahoma’s website.
