Blake Colston

Elizabeth (Wade) Perkinson

I was born and raised in Elk City. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma with degrees in philosophy and mathematics, I attended Duke Law School, then served as a criminal Magistrate Judge in Durham, North Carolina for three years. I returned after my father, Larry Wade, passed away in 2011, and became the 3rd generation Wade-family publisher of the Daily News since 1937. It is truly an honor to serve such a supportive, positive, and progressive town as Elk City.

I’m part of the Elk City Chamber of Commerce Board, Fuller Program of Elk City Founding Board, Christmas Basket Fund Board, the Red Carpet Community Theater Board, and the Elks Lodge. I have a husband, Jerry, and three dogs, Oreo, Ernie and Buddy, and two cats, Tib and Tibbles.
