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

https://www.ok.gov/elections/support/ok_results_cnty.pdf

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!

If you want more information on why to vote no on Proposition 2 visit on facebook Vote No on the Price Tower Park

Signs in the Heavenlies – Solar Eclipse August 21 2017

solar eclipseIt is truly hard to imagine any message more appropriate right now.  I hope you will watch this video before the eclipse. I think it will add new perspective to what is occurring in the heavenlies.

Genesis 1:14. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years

Luke 21:11. And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Video below is with Mark Biltz from El Shaddai Ministries. It is all about God’s calendar with lots of scripture references and historical information.  [Update 9/9/17 This video has been deleted since the original post formerly/http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5r5-QxjHXW4]

The Case for Christ — one Man’s Journey to Find the Truth

The movie is compelling on so many levels. It was refreshing to see a journalist actually dig for a story and admit when he makes a mistake! The story is about Lee Strobel and his efforts to research and debunk the ‘myth’ of Christianity and faith. He is a writer and a seeker of truth from beginning to end.

 

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:13

If you are paying attention you can almost see the hound of heaven pounding on the door of his heart.  You can see the prayers of his wife materialize on the screen.  You can feel the agony of a man’s journey to find the truth even when it defies all he has built his life around.

Don’t miss this movie when it is in your area.  You and your entire family will enjoy and probably learn something too.  Did I mention there is a subplot that is as compelling as the main story.  It revolves around a court case and a media story that causes his conviction wrongfully.  I wonder how many of us would have had the courage to admit we were wrong and correct the matter?

Here is the website about the movie.

If you stay for the credits you will find out what happened to each of the main characters and even the children.  If you want to read the book, it is available on Amazon.  Click here for more info or to order online.

It’s Official! Senator Nathan Dahm is running for US Congress – District 1 in Oklahoma

 
Nathan Dahm Announces Run for Congress
May 5, 2017
Broken Arrow— Senator Nathan Dahm (R-Broken Arrow) today announced his candidacy for Oklahoma’s First Congressional District. Surrounded by over 100 supporters, Dahm said he has a passion to serve God by serving other people, and believes running for Congress is his next step in that service.
“Over the past few years, we’ve gone on many journeys together, and today, I’m asking you to join me on a new journey,” said Dahm. “I have fought tirelessly to defend our Constitutional rights and worked to implement long term vision to make our state better for the upcoming generations.”
Oklahoma’s First Congressional District will be vacated by current Congressman Jim Bridenstine in 2018. If elected to Congress, Dahm said he wants to focus on free market principles as well as openness, transparency, and accountability in government, which allow the opportunity for success.
“When government is limited, we thrive,” added Dahm. “I will do all I can to limit government, and require it to be more efficient, less wasteful, and less intrusive in people’s lives and in their wallets. I will continually fight to uphold the oath I have sworn to defend the Constitution, to protect our God-given rights, and to restore the balance of powers between the states and the federal government for limited government operating under the principles of our Republic. I look forward to serving the people of this district as a guardian to protect their rights from all those who would infringe on our rights.”
Dahm was elected to the Oklahoma State Senate in 2012 and makes his home in Broken Arrow.

Press Release here: 050517__Nathan Dahm Announces Run for Congress (pdf downloadable)
[Editor’s Note:  It is a thrill to know that Nathan Dahm will run for this open Congressional seat in 2018!  The first time he ran for the seat in 2010, he was not very well known in the district.  That will not be the case this time, being known as the guy who beat Piers Morgan on his own show!  He is the only announced candidate to my knowledge with an in office voting record and Nathan Dahm’s voting record is sterling.  He is one of the top ranked conservatives by multiple sources for multiple years.  More than that he is loved by the people he represents because he works to protect and defend their rights.  We need to keep this congressional district in good hands.  Go Nathan!  Our prayers are with you Nathan – may His blessings continue to be upon you!/sc]
