Lucas is a sixth generation native of Oklahoma, where he and his family currently live. He has served in municipal government for more than 17 years, including as a police officer, city manager, firefighter and urban planner. Before earning a Master’s degree in Public Administration from Pennsylvania State University and a Bachelor’s degree in Geography from Fresno State, Clayton lived in Venezuela for two years where he became fluent in Spanish.
Lucas and his wife, Lora, have five children, Clayton III, Jonah, Willie, Henry and Heather, two of which have Type 1 Diabetes. As a result, Lucas and Lora are advocates and supporters of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and any organization that furthers the efforts to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Lucas and his family love to travel internationally, participate in outdoor activities and spend time with family and friends.
