3rd Penny: Round 1

Hats off to Our Tulsa World for video taping the mayor's first townhall meeting on the 3rd Penny extension. When one accounted for all of the mayor's people in the room, the turn out was relatively small.

It was amazing how little information or ideas the mayor had at his command. It was tough for me to not chime in on a lot of the questions that were asked. I'm looking forward to debating Mr. LaFortune as the campaign progresses. However, most of the people advising me that understand campaigns and strategy tell me that Hizonner will try everything he can to avoid any real debates.

Let's hope that's not true.

I'm planning on attending tonight's meeting in the Aaronson Auditorium. Hopefully the mayor will be better prepared.
