Biographical Information
PERSONAL:

Rep. Tammy West is serving as the majority whip during her third term in the Oklahoma House of Representatives, appointed by House Speaker Charles McCall because of her strong leadership abilities and exceptional communication skills. This is after being elected by her peers to serve as the Caucus vice chair her first year in office, and later as Caucus chair.

West is a strong supporter of local control of schools. She was elected to the Putnam City School Board of Education in 2009 and reelected in 2014, both times unopposed. She served as president of the Board in 2013. In addition, she was honored with the Distinguished Service Award from the State Regents for Higher Education during the 2017 legislative session.

West is an accomplished community and business leader. She completed the Southern Leadership Conference’s Center for the Advancement of Leadership Skills program, the premier professional development program for elected and appointed Southern state officials, in 2017. She received the 2018 Rising Star Award by the State Chamber of Oklahoma for her role as a legislative leader in the business community. She was awarded the AARP Legislative Leadership Award and named the Legislator of the Year by the Oklahoma Association of Realtors® in 2019.

She was one of 11 select legislators chosen within the Southern region to attend the Center for the Advancement of Leadership Skills (CALS), and she was appointed to the Southern Leadership Conference Education Committee.

Nominated by the Speaker of the House, West attended the 16th annual State Legislative Leaders Foundation (SLLF) conference at the prestigious Darden School of Business. In addition, the Speaker also appointed her as a GOPAC member.

West currently serves on the Board of Directors for RISE, Re-entry Investment in Student Education and is a Prison Fellowship member. She has been effective in enacting legislation that provides for a victim-centered, restorative justice deferred prosecution program, while still promoting public safety and protecting victims. In 2021, West received the “Bulldog Award” from the District Attorney’s Council for her “fight to improve criminal justice” in Oklahoma.

West has lived for 40 years in the state house district she represents.

A graduate of Central State University (now UCO) with a degree in business management, she owned and operated a successful small business, Wellness Plus, for more than 20 years.
