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!

Randy Barnett is ready to go to work for you the taxpayer, protecting, preserving, and defending your rights. He knows the constitution and has always stood for you as a veteran and in the private sector too.

I wish I lived in his district and could actually cast a vote for him. The next best thing I can do is make sure all my friends know about him and remember to vote for him on Tuesday, June 24th.

HD10 covers parts of Washington County and Osage County and all of Nowata County.  There is a map of the district on his website.

Here is a vote reminder message from Randy Barnett himself.  I call him the taxpayer’s best friend in HD10.

OK-SAFE Vote Reminder! Six State Questions on the November 6, 2012 Ballot.

click on pic to see complete newsletter vote reminder online

OK-SAFE, Inc. – There is plenty of discussion, and disagreement, on the six state questions on tomorrow’s ballot.

It must be pointed out that none of the state questions originated with the people, via initiative petition (i.e. the Personhood Amendment initiative petition effort was squelched).

The questions that did make it to the ballot came via the legislature; this means they had the approval of party “leadership” and can indicate that politics played more of a role than principled leadership.

The questions deal with some challenging issues (property taxation, affirmative action, bonded indebtedness).

After many debates, and additional research, OK-SAFE still recommends a NO vote on 5 of the questions and YES vote (tentative) on 1 question.

5 No’s and 1 Yes (tentative)

The NO Votes are SQ 758, 759, 762, 764, and 766. The one YES vote, with reservations, is SQ 765.
