“I love my home and want to work for all the people all the time,” said Culver in a press briefing. “I’ve said all along that I’m about big leadership, big hearts and big service. It’s a privilege to represent the people of Cherokee County, and I look forward to continuing to serve.” stated the humble giant of a man.
Big Ed went on to say, “I pledge to continue to be YOUR voice at the capitol and to make it a priority to vote. As always, have a great day!”
The former University of Oklahoma lineman has dedicated this season of his life to public service. He’s hoping to be spiking the ball in celebration of his second term as representative in Cherokee County this time on June 28. Big Ed is an ethical leader, the state of Oklahoma could use his leadership as Governor or as Senator Culver.
