The Tulsa mayoral race is a discouraging reality show for fiscal conservatives to observe. The voter base of conservatives has been depleted through the enticement of quieter life in the suburbs.
The great leadership of past mayors like Jim Inhofe and Bob LaFortune, are but a distant memory.
GT Bynum has shamelessly and openly promised the Tulsa firefighters and Fraternal Order of Police, massive and irresponsible pay raises while showing the voters no credible way to pay for the budget-busting bribes.
Bynum never met a tax idea that he didn't like. He has never been a friend of the Tulsa taxpayer or even the utility customer. These are all very dangerous issues which will exacerbate the flight of conservatives to the surrounding suburbs and turn Tulsa into a solid blue liberal Democrat hell.
It leaves us wondering how, just 3 decades ago, Tulsa could have been declared;
'America's Most Livable City'
The collective stupidity of several administrations, along with a pathetic city council which fails in comparison to the former city commission; has resulted in decisions which have robbed our children of a brighter future.
The current city hall was among the stupidest decisions Tulsa government could ever have made. It alone is a reason why our parks are largely boarded up.
Tulsa needs real leaders. But GT Bynum's vision for Tulsa is a nightmare.
