Rep. T.J. Marti, R-Tulsa, condemned the recent bomb threats made against several schools in the Union Public Schools district this week.

“These threats against our schools must stop. Law enforcement must do everything in their power to track down those responsible for making them and our judicial system must prosecute these perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law.

The rhetoric spurring these threats has been tolerated long enough and must end today. We know that our education system needs improvement, but there is a process in place to do that. These threats and hateful rhetoric have no place in Oklahoma

Oklahoma is home to some of the best teachers in the nation, and they are doing everything they can to help students achieve academic and personal success. Our focus should be on helping students across the state succeed, not villainizing our hard-working educators and administrators or terrorizing innocent students and their families."

Marti's legislative district includes a portion of Union Public Schools.
