The Tulsa Area Republican Assembly June meeting will feature the co-chairmen of the Legislative Platform Caucus. Rep. Chuck Strohm & Rep. Sean Roberts will be the featured speakers at the Tuesday night meeting, in South Tulsa. This last Spring, several legislators made a pledge to uphold the Republican Platform in their roles as state legislators.
While the group is not yet formally registered as a minority caucus, there has been an outpouring of grass roots support for these "twenty-sumth'n" known allies of fiscal conservatism.
Earlier this month, Rep. Jason Murphey called for a Supreme Court challenge to the many revenue bills which violated well-established regulations of the legislature.
Rep. Tom Gann also strongly rebuked the practice of calling taxes something else, in a vain attempt to skirt clear constitutional restrictions.
Here's the club posting of the meeting:
June Meeting is so eventful that we will begin 30 minutes early.
There are 7 candidates filed and running as Republicans in the special election to complete the term of the late David Brumbaugh.
We are asking each of them to take a few minutes to addres those assembled in the hall.
Then we will give them each a candidate questionnaire, to return to our leadership in the next few weeks. Our July meeting will include an endorsement vote in this race, prior to the August primary election. To vote, members must be registered with paid membership by June 20th.
Our special guests for the June meeting are Chuck Strohm & Sean Roberts. They are members of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, and co-chairs of the Platform Caucus.
They will have plenty to discuss about the legislative session, and their efforts to reflect the Republican Party values, as reflected in the OKGOP Platform.
Dinner starts at 6pm (Dutch treat).
6:00 p.m. for dinner
6:30 p.m. for speakers
