Revisiting a controversial news mess from 10 months ago, where Franklin Graham was sabotaged by self-serving media outlets.
Of the four recipients who've been recognized as 'Citizen of the Year' since we began the tradition in 2018, all of them are keen to utilize the principle of collaboration for extending human rights. OK2A President, Don Spencer (2019 COTY recipient), has worked extensively with OKHPR and other causes. Attorneys Frank Urbanic and Ron Durbin have been active in the courtrooms, legislative chambers, and agency boardrooms.
Even when good statutes are passed, state agencies have frequently surpassed or stifled the intent of the lawmakers(as Ron Durbin demonstrated in 2018). Sometimes a litigation is needed, as was the case last year when Frank Urbanic prevailed to end the governor's edict which would have bankrupted hundreds of restaurants and taverns, and put thousands of employees out of work.
All of the COTY recipients have gone far beyond collaborating with lawmakers. They deal with state agencies and even advocate in courtroom litigation when needed. They also help form the electoral process by backing fellow advocates who seek elective and appointed offices.
SoonerPolitics is honored to be a part of honoring some of Oklahoma's great advocates for liberty.
- David Van Risseghem, Chairman of the COTY committee for SoonerPolitics.
