Ron Turner reappointment hearing

| | Comments (6)

My Tulsa World blog has video of yesterday's Council Committee hearing on Ron Turner's reappointment to the Tulsa Airport Authority. Turner has been asked to appear before the full City Council meeting to answer questions and respond to citizen complaints of his conduct during his time as a chairman and member of the TAA.

It will be interesting to see if the General submits himself to be "court-martialed" by a group of the Reform councilors that he probably considers to be mere Privates.

Note: General Turner does the bidding of the Siegfried financial interests. They want him on the TAIT. He's also on their Nordam board.

The short article yesterday in Lorton's World showed the General's Glamour Shot photo-pic from their archives, appearing resplendent in his military regalia. I would estimate that picture is about 20 years old, from his halcyon days in the Oklahoma Air National Guard.

A former jet fighter pilot, he's now afraid of a few mean-old $18K per year city councilors who might scare him during their Kangaroo Court, a.k.a. Weekly City Council MEETING. They might ASK him to actually EXPLAIN his actions at TAIT. WELL, the NERVE of those PEONS.

Don't they KNOW who he IS?

GENERALS don't explain their actions to measly no-rank privates. Golly Gee, NO.

Just press the Ejection Seat and BAIL OUT, General, if you're afraid of being shot down by mean old Roscoe Turner, who has you zeroed in his gunsight.



In the wonderful world of lorton, apparently its OK to thumb your nose at an entire branch of government. the council is the city's legislative branch. It is one of the checks and balances in our republic.

I'm sick of this attitude. Give the council sipeona powers if they don't already have them. Then see how Turner looks surrounded by iron bars and sex offenders.
