Run-off Election Surprise!

…………… Say NO and save $$$……….

Many people know that there is a run-off election for the sheriff’s race in Washington County on August 25th. But did you know for the city of Bartlesville there is also a bunch of bonded indebtedness on the ballot? Do you know how much money a handful of people will be deciding on? Well let’s take a look at the sample ballots and then talk about that.

Here’s a summary of ballot items in Washington County. If you want to pull your own sample ballot go to http://ok.gov/elections and type in your name and birthdate as prompted:

Sample ballot for the run-off in the sheriff’s race:

I recommend a vote for Scott Owen.

Sample ballot for the City of Bartlesville:

So that’s it folks hidden in plain sight on the run-off election day is bonded indebtedness of $16,400,000 (that is over 16 million dollars) and an extension of 1/2% sales tax to June 30, 2026. IF you said NO we could get a reduction in sales tax burden. If you said NO we could keep our property taxes more stable. But the thing that makes me the maddest is that a handful of people will decide this for everyone. This should have been on the general election voting day – NOT the primary run-off election day!

Well I am just one vote but I’ll be saying NO five times!
