As a 5th generation teacher and one of a long line of family members who value the pursuit of higher education, Devyn is a passionate advocate for well-funded public education.
Oklahoma is proud of our military servicemen and veterans, and improving the conditions of care for our valued patriots is a top priority.
Our seniors deserve the right to live in their home if they choose and to afford basic needs such as medications, utilities, food.
The continued neglect and draconian cuts to our social services and social security has left Oklahoma’s elderly population in a state of rapid decline, and as Baby Boomers continue to age, we will see a major crisis of care. Devyn stands strong with the idea that we have to take better care of the generations that took care of us. Leaving our elders in inadequate nursing homes with dangerously neglectful conditions is a recipe for disaster.
Through both her self-founded nonprofit Operation Nurses Helping Nurses and business Nyved Consulting, Devyn is acutely aware of not only the effect of disasters, both natural and man-made, but also how policy shapes our ability to overcome them.
In 2018, all citizens should be afforded equal treatment.
As the debate over guns and our constitutionally-guaranteed Second Amendment rights continues, what is often overlooked are common sense actions that many advocates on both sides of this issue agree on.
Oklahoma incarcerates more women than any other place in the world. This is unacceptable.
The benefits of hemp production are profound and widely accepted.
As an RN, Devyn Denton has seen first hand how budget cuts affect the health and well-being of Oklahomans. From hospital closures in rural communities to Medicaid cuts that hurt our children and elderly. As your representative, Devyn Denton will fight to protect Oklahoma’s most vulnerable and expand access to quality care throughout the state. Increasing access to care will be Devyn’s primary focus. Expanding Nurse Practitioners role within their communities can increase access to healthcare in rural areas.
Devyn knows that leadership must be able to foresee the future needs of a growing community like Edmond. Putting in place systems like public transit and statewide internet, not only serve to benefit the people of Oklahoma, but encourage economic development. Devyn’s legislative focus will be to expand our state’s budget for transportation, water treatment, and focusing on Oklahoma’s rural communities that have been left behind.
