May this Silly Season remind constituents, you get the government you deserve and every election has consequences. Tulsa Today offers all candidates an equal opportunity platform to make a case for their election.

Campaigning is expensive, time consuming and hard work. The costs reside in reaching voters with a direct unfiltered message – the hard part is being friendly within a politically charged combative environment with some that effort your total destruction.

Please take the time to research, meet and ask questions of each candidate.

Democracy only works when people participate.
