Steve Fair was elected as the National Committeeman from Oklahoma and is currently serving his third term as 4th District Chairman and his 10th as chairman of the Stephens County party. Over the years, he has built strong grassroots-driven local party organizations in southwest Oklahoma, developing a how-to manual in the process and creating the state’s second-largest annual Republican gathering, the Stephens County Republican Party Fish Fry. It’s telling that the 4th District hasn’t seen a serious Democratic congressional candidate since 2002. State legislative seats in southwest Oklahoma, once a solidly Democrat-dominated area, have turned from blue to red during Steve’s two decades of leadership.
In addition to those chairmanships, Steve has served on the state party’s executive committee and budget board, an as the Oklahoma Republican Party Treasurer. His day job involves marketing for an Oklahoma-based food manufacturer.
More than an organizer, Steve Fair is also a thinker and a writer, producing a weekly column on policy and politics which appears in several area newspapers and is posted on his blog, Fair and Biased. He is a consistent voice for the sanctity of human life, the right to keep and bear arms, reducing the size and scope of government, and government transparency and accountability.
Steve is active in his church as music director. He and his wife Debbie have two grown children (one of whom, Jeremy Fair, was recently installed as pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church, a conservative evangelical congregation in Tulsa), and three grandchildren.
