Dwight Tanner Jr., a Lawton businessman in Oklahoma, has announced his candidacy for Central District Comanche County Commissioner.
Tanner prepared the following statement with his announcement:
“I am Dwight G. Tanner Jr. and I am an independent candidate for Central District Comanche County Commissioner. I was born in Corsicana, TX, the fruitcake capital of the world, minus a few of us. I moved to Lawton in the late 1970s to live with my mother. My stepfather, Dan Cox, was in the military and he owned an auto body and paint business. He taught me the trade of auto body and paint repair and I went into business for myself in 1990.
“Since opening Tanner’s Auto Body 22 years ago, I have also successfully maintained a towing company and various real estate investments.
“I attended MacArthur High School and am currently a part-time student at Cameron University. I am married and have five children. They are all good-looking and smart, just like their daddy. I am very thankful for the blessings I have.”
