"My goal is not to weaken the power of government
but to confine it to what it is intended"
Larry will actively work with economic development organizations in District 7 to attract new industries to our area, while at the same time providing assistance to our existing business’ to keep them growing…not closing.
Larry will vote to protect rural schools from Oklahoma City’s “one size fits all” mandates and make certain our rural school districts are adequately funded.
Larry will be that strong voice when decisions about our water and other natural resources are being decided. Larry believes Southeastern Oklahomans must have input in the decision making effecting our water and he intends to speak loud and clear in Oklahoma City to achieve that goal.
Larry Boggs, a native of southeastern Oklahoma wants to be your District 7 State Senator. Being the 4th of 11 children (3 boys and 8 girls), Larry is the son of hard working Christian parents, Ruby and the late Buck Boggs. From a very early age Larry worked to help the family make ends meet. He knows how to shine shoes, deliver papers and milk cows and doesn’t think it’s a disgrace to have had those experiences. In fact, he thinks they were opportunities.
Larry is married to wife Karla and has one daughter and three grandchildren. Although Larry’s professional background is that of a general contractor taking him from Ada, Oklahoma to as far away as Virginia and the east coast, he always knew he would return to his homeland in southeastern Oklahoma and he did just that in 1994. Larry and Karla operate Rockland at Eagle’s Rest, and founded Eagles Rest Sanctuary, Inc. a corporation centered on protecting and providing for the nesting American Bald Eagle’s on land once owned by Karla’s family. They run a cattle operation and raise horses on this land as well and feel blessed to be back in God’s country.
Larry’s goals from the Senate will be to focus on job creation through securing new industries for SE Oklahoma and assist existing business’ to expand. He will protect rural schools from Oklahoma City’s “one size fits all” mandates and wants to make certain SE Oklahoman’s have a strong voice at the table when decisions regarding our water and natural resources are being determined.
Larry is a grassroots Oklahoman who believes “you give a day’s work for a day’s pay” and “go above and beyond the call of duty” and he stands ready to do just that so the people of District 7 have both an advocate and a strong voice in Oklahoma City.
“Mr. Boggs has received the support of NFIB Oklahoma because he has a clear understanding of the needs of small business owners. Larry Boggs believes in protecting their rights as well as fighting to keep unnecessary regulations from adding to the burden of running a successful business.”

“We need leaders in the Oklahoma Senate who have the courage and the commitment to find and eliminate wasteful spending, limit the growth of state government, and hold politicians and bureaucrats accountable to taxpayers."
“I expect Larry Boggs to be that kind of legislator, and I hope the voters of Senate District 7 will elect him on November 6.”
