Bowdy, (pronounced Bo- D), Peach is a 29 year-old farmer businessman from Woodward who is running as a Democrat for State Senate in November. He will meet the winner of the Marlatt-Evans Republican showdown on July 29.
“This is something I’ve always wanted to do,” Peach said.
Asked what he’d like to change if elected, Peach, a graduate of Moorland High School, replied, “Well, I’m worried about small schools, and the roads and bridges in Northwest Oklahoma.”
Peach, a rodeo athlete, has ridden bulls in the PBR for nine years and recently produced a rodeo in Woodward.
Asked about his chances in November, Peach said, “I think I’ll be running against Bryce, (Marlatt), and I think I have a good chance of winning.”
“Bryce has always wanted to do this, but I’m the only one who has ever had to meet a payroll.”
Peach, besides being a rodeo promoter, is a farmer and rancher and with his brother owns and operates an oilfield service company.
He attended Frank Phillips College in Borger, Texas on a rodeo scholarship, and like Evans and Marlatt, graduated from NWOSU. His degree is in Ag. Business.
