Made in district 38
Jeff Berrong was raised to be a giver and not a taker.
“We are here to give back to our communities, to make the world a better place and to take care of other people,” Jeff says. “I have always felt a strong sense of civic responsibility.”
Jeff is seeking the open seat in District 38 of the Oklahoma State Senate because he wants to give back to his fellow Oklahomans. He wants to break through partisan gridlock and secure funding for education, rural infrastructure and healthcare services, and economic development.
“Not only do I believe we have a duty to properly fund government, but I want to get as near as possible to one hundred cents of value for every tax dollar spent,” he says.
“My philosophy on government is simple and it is that people should get from government only the services they want, and that they pay no more for those services than is necessary.”
Deep roots in Western Oklahoma
Born & raised
Jeff grew up in Custer County a few miles outside of Weatherford. He graduated from Weatherford High School in 2000 and received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Oklahoma in 2004. Before returning home to western Oklahoma in 2006, Jeff served as a field representative for former Oklahoma Congressman Dan Boren.
He is a fourth-generation Oklahoman and a third generation owner in his family’s business, Ed Berrong Insurance Agency, which has been in Weatherford for 70 years. The Agency was founded by Jeff’s grandfather, the late former State Senator Ed Berrong, Sr., who was known as the Senate watchdog on tax dollars and had a fierce reputation for rooting out waste and fraud in state government.
Jeff’s parents, Brad & Jeanine Berrong, live in Weatherford, along with Jeff’s younger brother Michael and sister-in-law Charissa. Also currently active in the business are Jeff’s cousin Stewart Berrong and Jeff’s uncle, former mayor of Weatherford Ed Berrong, Jr.
Throughout his life, Jeff has spent countless weekends, summer trips, and holidays in Altus. His mother’s family moved to Altus in 1969 when his late grandfather, Gail S. Miller, a Colonel in the U. S. Air Force Reserves, was transferred to Altus Air Force Base. Jeff’s aunt, Kathy Hale, has served as director of the Southern Prairie Library System in Altus since 1979.
Jeff is very involved in the Weatherford community. He has been an active member of the Weatherford Rotary Club; and has served on the board of directors of the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce, the Weatherford Area Economic Development Foundation, and the Great Plains Family YMCA. He also sings in the Chancel Choir at the First United Methodist Church of Weatherford.
