Tulsa County Isn't Broke, Don't Fix It!

The vote tomorrow on the "4 to Fix the County" and the $.50 fee on cell phones, will be determined by the good citizens of the CITY OF TULSA. It is in our control to determine the outcome of this election. We have the numbers of voters.

A lot is at stake. It is obvious to everyone that the CITY OF TULSA needs the municipal sales tax income stream instead of the County. Although we can all see the fruits of the County's improvements to such things as LaFortune Park and the Fairgrounds, 4 to Fix was always supposed to be a temporary tax.

Have you ever noticed how all these "temporary taxes" just keep getting extended?

The County of Tulsa has been in great shape for some time now. They are amassing tens of millions of dollars in excess tax revenue and that is forecasted to continue into the future. Why? Because with the continuous flight from Tulsa to the suburbs, the tide turned some years back. The major suburbs of Tulsa, Jenks, Broken Arrow and Owasso, have reached a critical mass. No longer do they need good ole T-Town for jobs. They now have more economic development that Tulsa. They have better schools too, so the trend will keep going.

My point here is that Tulsa County is in great shape.

Tulsa is not.

The County is not broke, so let's don't fix it!

Vote NO on everything. Give T-Town a chance to start recovering.

Also, vote no on the $.50 cell phone tax. It will go into a quagmire with the lack of accountability we see so often in local politics. We have to stop slopping the hogs trough with consistent tax increases, that includes this user fee.

I looked at your profile ... tell me why anyone would choose to live in Tulsa or OK for that matter?

Poor and backward.
