Comanche County Native
“I grew up east of Lawton in a multi-generation farm and ranch family. After graduating from MacArthur High School, I played football at Southern Nazarene University for 3 years before graduating with a business degree from Cameron University,” Caldwell said.
“While I had opportunities outside the state, there was nowhere else I wanted to live, work and raise a family than right here in Southwest Oklahoma. I currently work as an Insurance Agent for Oklahoma Farm Bureau and Farm Bureau Financial.”
“As state representative, I will work to make sure our area is a place where future generations can put down roots and thrive, and not feel compelled to move away like so many of my peers in my generation. I want our communities to be safe, healthy and prosperous places for everyone,” Caldwell said.
Farmer and Business Owner
Caldwell custom farms over 1,500 acres in SW Oklahoma. He farms cotton, wheat, and hay on his own farms in Faxon, Cache, and east of Lawton. He also runs a registered Angus business along with being an Oklahoma Farm Bureau Agent. Through hard work and commitment, Caldwell believes we must build up future generations to be active contributors and producers in society, not just consumers.
Caldwell learned the value of hard work at an early age. His dad worked at the Goodyear tire factory, and his mother taught at Almor West and Fletcher Elementary. Caldwell says that while some people today think that traditional values like faith, family and freedom are old fashioned and out dated, he believes “those values are timeless and needed now more than ever.”
