A Republican state legislator from Tulsa has filed candidacy paperwork indicating he plans to run for Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner in 2018.
State Rep. Glen Mulready filed a Statement of Organization form over the weekend with the Oklahoma Ethics Commission.
A longtime insurance professional, the 56-year-old Mulready is in his fourth term as a state lawmaker and currently serves as majority floor leader in the House.
Current Insurance Commissioner John Doak, also a Republican, is term-limited and can’t run again in 2018.
Mulready is the first candidate to file paperwork to run for the post.
