DISTRICT 6 REPUBLICAN:

Kevin Boggs:

Carryover = $0
Contributions = $350.00
Expenditures = $95.00

Total of contributions over $200 = $0
Total of contributions $200 or less = $350


DISTRICT 9 REPUBLICAN:

G. T. Bynum:

Carryover = $0
Contributions = $45,283.28
Expenditures = $9,643.09

Total of contributions over $200 = $43,798.28
Total of contributions $200 or less = $1,485.00

[Bynum's contributor list reads like a Who's Who of Tulsa. I will add it here later.]

Notes and analysis:

Keep in mind that the reporting period ended on February 18, so any contributions and expenditures in the week since then won't necessarily be shown on these reports. Some reports may be missing because the candidate did not raise or spend more than $500 before the end of the reporting period.

Once again, District 9 attracts the most money. Bynum's war chest to date is comparable to that of Cason Carter and Jeff Stava two years ago.

Note also how well financed Emanuel Lewis is. Among donors who gave more than $200, only two of them have addresses in Council District 1 -- himself and $1,000 donor Bobby Woodard. But Woodard's address, 3606 N. Cincinnati, does not appear to be a residence. The rest of his $201+ donors live in 74114, 74105, 74120, (all midtown), 74136 (south Tulsa), and 74012 (Broken Arrow). So at least $12,000 of $13,500 of Lewis's major contributions, and at least $12,000 of $14,600 total contributions (82%), are from outside District 1.

See, my campaign finance reform proposal would have a direct impact here, that is, if only those who could actually vote for the candidate were allowed to contribute directly to their campaign.

Note: scratch the 'money = speech' argument. Those so inclined to 'speak' with their money can take out issue ads to promote their interest, asking _voters_ to consider a candidate who, for example, encourages suburban sprawl, without naming them. Or, whatever other issue is important to them so much that they wish to blow some real cash.

Let those who are affected select, support and promote their own representation.

I'm of the opinion that if it is to happen, it will do so first at the local level.

If someone were to wish to simply support "The American Way", Democracy in general or such, they would have the option of contributing equal amounts to all candidates in a particular race, which would amount to a blind investment handled by the Election Board, perhaps.

Emanuel Lewis:

Webster is running for Tulsa City Council?

Bob said:

Jack Henderson's opponent, Mr. Emmanuel Lewis, received $1,000 from Daniel Ellinor.

Ellinor is Executive Vice President of:

You guessed it: Bank of Oklahoma.

Other obvious associates of Billionaire George Kaiser:

George Kaiser $500 for Maria Barnes
Ruth (Kaiser) Nelson $250 for Maria Barnes.

Ruth Kaiser Nelson $400 for David Patrick.

Looks like opponents of the failed 2007 Kaiser River Tax are being punished, and that friends of the Kaiser River Tax are being rewarded.

Payback time.

Let's go ahead and save a lot of time and fuss, and just change the name of Tulsa to Kaiserslauten.

Change name of the Arkansas river to the Kaiser River, while we're at it, too.

How does Kaiser County sound?

Any objections? No, of course not.
