OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Mike Hunter today announced he has reappointed Cathy Stocker to the Oklahoma Ethics Commission.
Stocker will serve a five-year term and represent the 3rd Congressional District. She is beginning her second and final consecutive term. State law prohibits anyone from serving more than two terms in succession.

“Throughout her first term, Cathy Stocker has proven herself as a great asset to the commission,” Attorney General Hunter said. “She has dedicated her career to public service, giving her unmatched institutional knowledge and experience. I know she will continue to serve with honesty, integrity and fairness.”
Stocker, of Enid, previously served seven terms and 28 years as the district attorney for District 4, which includes Garfield, Blaine, Canadian, Grant and Kingfisher counties. She previously served as the chair of the district attorneys council and president of the Oklahoma District Attorneys Association. She currently serves on the boards of the United Way of Enid and Northwest Oklahoma and Denny Price Family YMCA.
Stocker said she is humbled and honored to be reappointed to the commission.
“I appreciate Attorney General Hunter’s assurance in me to continue serving in this capacity,” Stocker said. “I will remain committed to accountability and upholding the rules the commission has set forth for elected officials and state employees.”
Stocker received her bachelor’s and law degrees from the University of Oklahoma.
About the Ethics Commission
The Oklahoma Ethics Commission was created by a vote of the people at the runoff primary election on September 18, 1990.
Commissioners are charged with promulgating and enforcing rules of ethical conduct for campaigns for state office, for campaigns for state questions, for state officers and employees.
The commission is composed of five members, one each appointed by the governor, the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and the Attorney General. Commissioners serve staggered five-year terms, are limited to two terms and represent each of the state’s five Congressional districts. No more than three members may be from the same political party.
