Biography

Blake Aguirre was born in Ardmore and has deep roots in rural communities, communities which are similar to many located in Senate District 22. He graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with his bachelor’s degree in Political Science with minors in Pre-Law and Spanish. Having been raised by my mom and Navy dad, he knows full well the struggles many military families face as they balance family life with duty. Veterans’ issues are also very close to his heart, as many of my family are veterans, and he has learned so much about what can be done to help these heroes once they’re back home.

When his mom and maternal grandmother were diagnosed with cancer in 2011, he saw them struggle with the current healthcare system, which drove him to get more involved with helping others who experienced these struggles. He’s learned to think outside the box for solutions, such as when his family established a local firework business to raise funds to help pay the co-payments for cancer patients. He will work toward a healthcare system which works more efficiently and which helps patients more than it hurts them. As the grandson of an immigrant, he’ll strive to find a balance between a secure border and an effective path to citizenship for those who come to America in search of a better life. He knows many of their struggles, and he truly wants to help build a stronger Oklahoma by making Oklahoma stronger for us all.
