State Senate Dist. 33 Debate Report

On Monday, May 13, 2024, there was a debate by 3 of the 4 candidates running for OK SD33, the seat currently belonging to State Senator Nathan Dahm, who will term out at the end of the current session. Christi Gillispie, Shelley Gwartney, and Tim Brooks came to tell the citizens of District 33 why they should be the next Oklahoma State Senator from Broken Arrow.

In a randomly drawn order, Christi Gillispie began her introductory remarks with a story about herself as a child, “putting the fish back in the fishbowl” contrary to instructions from authority. Tim Brooks talked about the foundational American principles of “Life, Liberty, and Property.” Shelley Gwartney talked about her work with Moms for Liberty and Oklahomans for Health and Parental Rights (OKHPR) in promoting parents’ rights when it comes to protecting their kids and ensuring civilization’s future.

Tulsa District 3 Candidate Void

The City of Tulsa is holding general elections for mayor, city auditor, and city council on August 27, 2024 with a filing deadline of June 12th. Council District 3, long my home district, has no candidate on the ballot declared at this time. The current Councilor, Crista Patrick, is stepping down, and there appears to be no civic-minded resident willing to step in the void. Not one.

For many years there was a leap frog term exchange between Roscoe Turner and David Patrick as Councilors for the District. After Mr. Patrick’s passing, his daughter Crista took up the mantle. All have advanced growth and fought what negative issues came with that growth.

The Case for Catoosa’s 911 Dispatch Center

Recently, I participated in a hearing before the 911 Management Authority on behalf of the City of Catoosa. Police Chief Ronnie Benight and I spoke in support of the city’s application to build a 911 dispatch center in its new police/fire station. 

Catoosa submitted its application several months ago, but it was slowed by the Authority’s red tape. In fact, Catoosa’s application was slowed down so much it was in danger of not being approved by the statutory deadline of July 31.

This is a really big deal for our community. Catoosa, in 2022, bonded $20 million for the police/fire station, with $2.2 million of that specified for the 911 dispatch center. Catoosa was very much in peril of losing this application and having to build its dispatch center for nothing.

Owasso Native Aboard Floating Airport

Seaman Landon Gregory, a native of Owasso, Oklahoma, is one of more than 5,000 sailors serving aboard the self-contained mobile airport, USS Theodore Roosevelt.

Equipped with a full flight deck and more than 60 aircraft including attack fighter jets and helicopters, aircraft carriers are one of the largest warships in the world.

Gregory, a 2022 graduate of Tulsa Lighthouse Christian Academy, joined the Navy over a year ago.

“In third grade, my teacher asked our class what career they wanted when they got older,” said Gregory. “I chose the military. My grandad was in the Navy and, although I had other dreams growing up, the military stayed with me.”
