Tulsa Area Voters
August 8 – Bond vote for “Improve Our Tulsa” – VOTE NO!
The ballot is divided into 4 propositions which pile an additional $814 million dollars of debt onto taxpayers by extending a property tax and adding a sales tax. The latter primarily funds the debt service on the Tulsa city Councilor, Grant Miller, has already raised a concern that the city had NOT taken the time to fully vet out the need and details of this proposal or those who would be doing the work.
Why are they pushing this through so fast? Because a property tax about to fall off our shoulders is about to expire and in typical fashion they don’t want to lose tax payer dollars. While presented as “not raising taxes” it extends ongoing tax burden and does raise a sales tax to pay the MILLIONS of dollars in interest due on this debt!
Over $104 million is going toward what they call a “homeless housing crisis” and yet calls to determine the number of actual homeless in our cities varied widely proving they really haven’t taken the time to vet out their information before passing a huge debt onto our shoulders. Millions of dollars in federal funds have already been allocated to this homeless issue.
Shouldn’t the city leadership be held accountable to properly use the federal money already given as well as the money already provided by previous advance tax bonds rather than working to create new ways to keep the money flowing into their hands rather than letting old tax initiatives finally expire. For Tulsa it seems no tax is temporary.
March 7 is the vote for SQ 820 to legalize Recreational Marijuana. We have been told by elections boards across the state that the number of first-time voters registering to vote FOR this issue are increasing.
