Proposed Charter Changes for the City of Tulsa: A Discussion
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, OK – On today's edition of StudioTulsa, we present an in-depth discussion, with positions both pro and con, about the four ballot questions related to city government that Tulsa voters will confront when they enter the polls on Tuesday of next week (November 8th; Election Day). In that election, voters will also decide on City Councilors for Districts 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 --- that is, for seven of the city's nine districts --- but the ballot questions, given their potential impact on how Tulsa's City Hall will actually function, are arguably even more important. (You can read all about these four ballot questions, and can download Election Board forms for same, here: http://www.cityoftulsa.org/our-city/proposed-charter-changes.aspx.) Our three guests bring varying views as well as informed opinions to these four questions: Len Eaton is on the steering committee for "Save Our Tulsa," Rick Westcott is the outgoing Tulsa City Councilor for District 2, and Greg Bledsoe is a Tulsa-based attorney and activist. KWGS News Director John Durkee is the guest host for today's program.
