From BatesLine:

Who I'm voting for in the Republican primary (or would vote for if I could):


Tulsa County Election Board:

League of Women Voters Primary Election voters' guide

Tulsa Metro Chamber candidate questionnaires: These questionnaires are well worth your time to read, as they deal with economic development, the respective roles of mayor and council, education, downtown, and the city's relationship to state government. You'll see some strong contrasts in the answers.

OK-SAFE non-partisan voter guide: Oklahomans for Sovereignty and Free Enterprise sent lengthy questionnaires to all the candidates. You can see responses summarized in a grid as well as the original responses submitted by the candidates. Questions deal with law enforcement, taxation, infrastructure, zoning and planning (including PLANiTULSA), and eminent domain among other topics. Even if you don't share OK-SAFE's political leanings, you'll find the questionnaire responses informative.

Thanks for posting all of the helpful information, Michael.

As a registered "Independent," I won't be voting in this election. In hindsight, I should have looked into the cutoff date for changing my party declaration from "I" to "R" or "D."

I think you are right on! I needed a bit of insight because this election snuck up on me. I was planning to vote for Dewey, but didn't know the inside info as you have revealed. Like you, I don't like Medlock's thorny ways, but he gets the job done and may be able to defeat Tom in debates and campaigning for the office.
