Tulsa area elections today

| | Comments (1)

Today, voters in the City of Tulsa will vote on a $250 million general obligation bond issue, which will be repaid by an increase in the property tax rate amounting to an extra $30 per year for a $100,000 home. I'm voting for all six items and hope you will, too.

Union Public Schools has a runoff for one school board seat. I've been very impressed with Tom Seng, a parent of Union students who wants to see the district focus on academics. He's rightly concerned about the amount of money the district spends on bricks and mortar for non-essentials.

Tulsa Public Schools has a runoff in office 3 (north Tulsa) between Joda Trimiar and Lana Turner.

Bixby, Broken Arrow, Glenpool, and Skiatook all have City Council races on the ballot.


Bob the Tulsan said:

Tulsans can give themselves a pittance of a $30.00 raise by Voting NO to all 6 propositions.

Here's why Tulsans should keep the $30.00:

If the average Tulsan is an average driver who burns on average 800 gallons of gasoline per year, then this year they will spend $1600 + on fuel that cost them approximately $800 last year.

I think many Tulsans are going to NEED that $30.00 to try and repair the dreadful harm done to family budgets by the rapid accent of energy cots.

And, just wait until they start getting this summer's electric bills, which will include "pass-through" costs for higher natural gas prices used in electricity generation.

The pain is just beginning.

The $30.00 is an aspirin.
