She has my vote.

Wonder if she will forego a salary this time too.

The other candidates are mistakes.

But one thing folks in this neck of the red woods love to do is keep electing mistakes.

Lets see how stupid Tulsan's really are by voting this bitch back into office. She did such a bang up job last time. She must think people have short memories, but Kitty Lobeck is arrogant and indignant enough to run again. Her and her private plane, her mansion off of 31st, her rich old husband and her idiot liberal friends make me sick. So glad that we got out of that town when we did. Kitty Lobeck is a loser.

Anyone know how much time she served in prison for her corruption during her last term? Seems the media has not covered any of her crimes and corruption against the Tulsa Taxpayers.

Taylors governance and moving Tulsa forward speaks for itself. Even those who don't like her cannot name one bad thing she did to the city as mayor.

Under Taylor Tulsa reach no. 8 in U.S. in cities of the future. She made Tulsa 15 in nation as a livable community. 16 for places where people wanted to relocate to.

Under Taylor revitalization took place all over town. Her leadership made Tulsa vibrant. She was instrumental in getting approval for funding for the infrastructure rebuilding we are seeing all over town.

Didn't always agree with her but her vision for Tulsa materialized and is continuing. BOK Center success. Ball Park success. Infrastructure success. There's been some backsliding at city hall since she left with the good-old-boys bickering and doing business as usual. Doing the very things that hold Tulsa back and Bartlett and Christensen are at the forefront of dragging the city down. They have a very backwards looking approach to governance and growth and there seems to be no shortage of those who love to stay bent over, and love it.

WMCOL, you are batpoop crazy. Tulsa is not a place people want to move to, but away from. It has poor schools, high crime, little opportunity for decent jobs, a bad drug/meth problem, an inept and regressive form of government and the list goes on and on. How many big corporations have relocated to Tulsa in the last 10-20 years? None. Why? Re-read the aforementioned. Why do so many college graduates from the state schools flock to Texas and other states? Because it has opportunity, a better quality of life, better jobs. Tulsa does not offer that so much. Tulsa used to be a nice place to live, but now its a nice place to be FROM.

She paid off her old liberal buddy George Soros Kaiser with money that was not hers to spend. She is as inept a leader as Hussein Obama. Kitty Lobeck will spend, spend, spend and tax, tax and tax some more. I guess this bitch has no shame and thinks people in Tulsa have short memories, perhaps they do. One of the many reasons why we got out of there as fast as we could was because of the leadership of that city. It could be so much more than it is, but it has had poor leadership for many, many years. I am neither republican nor democrat, but the blame for that city and its regressive mindset is on its leadership. I thought she would run for governor, but I guess her mission of effing up Tulsa even more is not complete. If she is elected, then Tulsa deserves what it gets....

This study is a joke. It only addresses one quality that Tulsa does have and that is low cost of living. Other than that, it has too many negatives. My argument is if the town is so great, why aren't large companies and people in general flocking to town? They are not. Everyone is coming to Texas because we have jobs and opportunity, we have things to do and see, we have great weather, etc. Texas has over 1000 new people a day move here. I grew up in Tulsa, left for college and then military and came back after several years to take care of my parents. It certainly was not the city it was when I was growing up. It has a huge crime problem, meth/drug problem, poor schools, poor civic leadership and had poor streets when we were there. Needless to say, we got out as fast as we could and there were very few people who I graduated with from high school that remained there. It seemed that people could not wait to get out. It does have some charming qualities about it, no doubt, but this study paints it as ideal. It may work for some, but for what we wanted for our family, it could not offer.
