Senator Greg Treat was elected 2011, in a special election to replace Lt. Governor Todd Lamb as the state senator from District 47.
District 47 encompasses northwest Oklahoma City and portions of Edmond, Deer Creek, and Bethany.
After graduating from Catoosa High School, Treat attended the University of Oklahoma earning a political science and history degree and graduating with honors earning him an invitation to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.
