Primary Election to be held on June 26, 2018 in Oklahoma

Here is an online tool from the Oklahoma State Election Board so that you can get your personal sample ballot which may differ depending on where you live.  It is also always available as a top tab item on OKGrassroots.com

You will need to plug in some personal information to be able to locate your personal sample ballot online.  You had to be registered by June 1st in order to vote in this election.  I am registered as a Republican so this information will be different for you if you are registered in one of the other parties.  I will be providing some personal endorsements over the next couple of weeks.  Stay tuned!

Results are in – Bartlesville Passed all 4 Propositions, but…

Source: https://www.ok.gov/elections/Election_Info/2018_March_Special_Election.html

All four propositions passed.  However, Proposition 2 (which included Price Tower Park and Amphitheater) passed by a much thinner margin at a little over 66%; the other propositions passed by about 79%, 83% and 81% respectively.  A voter turnout of 4,138 people made this decision for a city with a population of approximately 34,748.   Bartlesville is in a declining population mode which means fewer people will be paying into the property tax base to cover these bonds.   That is about 8% of the population voting in this special election.

Maybe we should eliminate special elections and have these matters on general election ballots so that more people would participate.  Just a thought…

For more info on what was actually on the ballot and how much money we just authorized spending – see my previous article here: https://scrosnoe.wordpress.com/2018/03/06/oklahoma-special-elections/

Oklahoma – Special Elections by County on March 6th – THIS IS YOUR VOTE REMINDER!

Here is a listing of all the special elections by county across Oklahoma (it is a pdf file and downloadable):

Only problem is it doesn’t give you the ballot wording on bonds. It does give you candidate names on the ballot in those cases. But you will still have to do your own research!  This will simply tell  you if there is an election in your area.

For my friends in Bartlesville, here is the ballot wording for all the money on the table for us in the City of Bartlesville.

In summary:

  • Proposition No 1 – City Equipment Projects – $1,995,000
  • Proposition No 2 – Parks and Recreation Facilities Projects – $8,260,000
  • Proposition No 3 – Street Projects – $5,120,000
  • Proposition No 4 – Storm Drainage Projects – $1,125,000

GRAND TOTAL (if all approved) $16,500,000

Sixteen Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars

What happens in a declining population base?  Can we really afford all this?  Will property taxes really remain the same?

I am so mad about the bundling of the much extravagant and unneeded amphitheater in proposition 2 – I may just vote no across the board.  I mean if they would do that on item 2 who knows what is buried in the other items!

My philosophy is when in doubt vote no and this time there is no doubt on Proposition 2 in my mind!

Finding Gems & Sharing Them – OK Heritage Farm – Fall Festival Brings A-Mazing Fun for Entire Family to Ramona (Bartlesville Area)

Oklahoma Heritage Farm Prepares for Fall Festival — The Maze is Ready!

Oklahoma Heritage Farm is located near Vera between Bartlesville and Tulsa on Highway 75.  It is the homeplace, family farm, store and project of Mike and Margaret Snow.  Recently an article was written about them by Susan Albert in Bartlesville Examiner Enterprise.

Mike and Margaret Snow are carrying on the lifestyle of their five-generation family. Like their parents and grandparents before them, they work the soil, grow the crops, raise the farm animals and provide for themselves.

We were “self-sustaining” before the term became popular, Margaret Snow said.

With the Oklahoma Heritage Farm Store, situated on acreage south of Ramona off U.S. Highway 75, the Snows have opened up their home and farm as a way to share the wealth of homegrown heirloom produce, homemade goodies and gifts and decor that depict the diverse heritage of Oklahoma.

“We feel like we live the good life and want to share that with people,” said Snow, who acknowledged they work long hours in the garden, she cooks every day, and they don’t have a computer in their home.

“We love to work,” she said. “We’re not non-progressive; we like it that way.”

They grow heirloom varieties — the same seed they sell in the store, and they grow it as organically as possible. They sell what is in season from their own backyard and don’t bring in any produce from other vendors. Right now it’s the early vegetables and greens, she said. Later, they will have summer vegetables plus fruit.

What they don’t sell from the garden they preserve — in a jar, in the freezer or in a dehydrator. The Snows also give away a lot of produce to the church, neighbors or elderly who may need fresh produce.
