Todd Hiett is married to Bridget Hiett and they have three children, Jimmy, John and Hillary. The Hiett family lives on a ranch two miles south of Kellyville. Hiett graduated from Oklahoma State University.
Hiett was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 1994 at the age of twenty-seven. Hiett quickly ascended into leadership and was selected by his colleagues to be House Minority Leader in November of 2002. Two years later, he led the state House Republicans to their first majority in eight decades and their largest victory in nearly a half-century. Marking a historic shift in power at the Capitol, Hiett was chosen the first Republican Speaker of the House in more than eight decades.
During his first year as Speaker, Hiett oversaw a smooth transition as House Republicans ascended to power with a bold agenda. The new Speaker pushed through the largest tax cut in state history, the most significant right-to-life legislation in thirty years, an innovative highway-funding bill and significant education reforms, collectively known as the ACE Initiative, which raised the bar for curriculum standards and graduation requirements in Oklahoma.
After a successful twelve years in the Oklahoma Legislature, Speaker Hiett worked eight years with various entities in the manufacturing, navigation and energy industries. In this role, Hiett enjoyed the opportunity to work with many pro-growth companies such as Webco Industries and Callidus Technologies to strengthen and expand their ability to provide jobs.
Most recently, Hiett was elected to serve as Vice-Chairman of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.
Bridget teaches fourth grade at Kellyville Elementary. Sons Jimmy and John are graduates of Oklahoma State University. Daughter Hillary is a sophmore at Oklahoma State University. The Hietts attend First Baptist Church of Kellyville.
Todd and Bridget continue to operate a ranch south of Kellyville, and Todd serves on various boards of directors including SpiritBank and Farm Bureau.
