tulsaNow-logo.pngThe April 1, 2014, election to increase Tulsa County sales tax rates to fund a new juvenile justice facility and expansion of the Tulsa County Jail (aka VisionPrison) is the topic of a forum tonight, Tuesday, March 11, 2014, hosted by TulsaNow. The forum will begin at 6, end at 7, and will be held at Foolish Things Coffee, 10th and Main in downtown Tulsa. Speakers will include Tulsa County Commissioner Karen Keith, Deputy Commissioner Mike Willis, and Sheriff Stanley Glanz. Attendees will have a chance to ask questions of the speakers. If you're wondering why Tulsa County voters aren't being given the opportunity to repurpose the Vision 2025 surplus to pay for these requests, this would be a good chance to ask.

With Tulsa's high FBI crime index -- relative to surrounding communities (triple that of BA) -- being the number one obstacle to economic improvement, one can appreciate efforts at crime reduction. However, jails are reactive, not proactive. They are certainly necessary, but far from sufficient. So another question to ask at the meeting is what is being done proactively (and we hope effectively) that will lead to a major reduction in Tulsa crime.
