Fun with video: Bill Martinson

| | Comments (1)

Tulsa City Councilor Bill "29%" Martinson took a lead role last Thursday night trying to fend off an audit of fuel flow records for fuel sellers at Jones Riverside Airport -- a group that includes Councilor Bill Christiansen, who, like Martinson, was helped into office by Bixby resident and former Tulsa councilor John Benjamin and political consultant Jim Burdge, who were also actively involved in the recall against Councilors Medlock and Mautino.

Martinson argued that the airport investigation was about Great Plains Airlines, and what did fuel flow fees at Jones Riverside have to do with Great Plains? Dave Schuttler of Our Tulsa World has compiled a helpful video to remind Councilor Martinson of what he learned about the investigation at Council committee meetings in the recent past.

Dave also has a link to the documents filed with the Federal Aviation Authority regarding Roadhouse Aviation's complaint against the Tulsa Airport Authority -- including responses from the City of Tulsa. (Roadhouse is Christiansen's competitor at Jones Riverside.)

And he has video of Martinson claiming that fuel-flow fees -- about $774,000 -- weren't important because they were "only" 3% of TAIT's total revenues for 2004. And this guy is touted as an accountant?

Governor Brad Henry was in the State Senate in 1996,1997,1998,1999,2000 during the time of the Great Plains Airlines. He was a democrat and since he majored in Economics, was he not lead to believe in purchasing shares of such a great economic boost for Oklahoma, or did he encourage his democrat friends on both legislature and senate side to be weary of the risk involved? Governor Henry probably has seen information on the Great Plains Airlines issues and records if someone would Urban Tulsa weekly would interview him.
