Senate Dist. 47 Candidates Explain Legal Problems (Jan 06, 2011)

Two candidates wanting to be the next state senator for District 47 are explaining legal problems they’ve had.

Court records show Citibank sued Carol Hefner in October over a nearly 8-thousand dollar credit card balance.

When asked about the matter following a candidate forum last month, Hefner told KGOU she thought the matter had been dealt with. She did not return a phone call or respond to an email sent Wednesday asking about the matter.

In Thursday's Oklahoman newspaper, Hefner says she stopped paying the bill to make a point about unfair credit company practices.

Court records show an agreement has been reached in the lawsuit, but a judge has not signed off on it yet. Court records also show two other financial related issues involving Hefner, and both have been settled.

Another candidate, Kenny Goza, was the subject of a protective order. He says a conflict over a hot rod caused him to ask for a protective order against another man who then asked for an order against Goza.

A Cleveland County judge granted both requests.

A search of Oklahoma City municipal court records also shows Goza has had two speeding tickets and third violation for approaching an emergency vehicle without caution in the past few years.

Listen to a candidate forum KGOU recorded with all the candidates in the Top News section.
