One of the Good 'Ol Boys?

This is a picture of the frontman for the recently unsuccessful recall effort for Tulsa City Councilors Chris Medlock and Jim Mautino. He is listed as the chairman for the Oklahoma Hotel and Lodging Association. He singlehandedly presented the public face to the recall effort, and the others did not reveal themselves until disclosure laws forced them to by setting a date for public disclosure. Then it was revealed that this recall effort was primarily backed by business interests from outside the city of Tulsa, plus a few prominent Tulsans, all with a motivation to feather their own nests. Shame on all of you for your vain attempt to thwart the will of the people!

By the way, I am against the recall effort leveled against four other councilors and the mayor. In our republic, if you don't agree with someone, you wait until the next ELECTION and then do your best to get people in office that represent you.

By the way, I wonder if this man is still smiling? He may just have awakened the sleeping giant of previously apathetic Tulsans, now energized into action and set to sweep new reformers into office early next year. I wonder?
