It is time to make a decision on who we are going to vote for. I really think lockhart has not lived up to what a state rep is supposed to do for his district. I like what traci barnes has done for the city of poteau [she started the poteau ballonfest and after all it is the biggest event in leflore county] and has done more for the city and county than anyone.Roger Mattox is the only republican who entered and I dont know to much about him other than he is a preacher.I was told he ran the last time also. I want someone in that office who will bring more jobs to this area and lockhart has done nothing!My husband works in the oilfield and has to work out of state now.I am going to vote for the only person who I believe will do this.I will be listening well to what they all say.

You are talking about the House District 3 race, huh Donna.

A first term legislator doesn't have much clout, James has made some votes that disappointed me, but I am a Republican. He did work hard to get the job and he has always responded to me when I had a question or comment about legislation. Neil Brannon never did.

I like Traci a lot! She too is a hard worker and her ideals are more conservative than James.

Roger Mattox will not have a primary election since no other Republican filed. He will face the winner of the Barnes-Lockhart race in November.

Yes he did run last time. He got 47% of the vote to James 53%. Redistricting changed things a little bit. The more conservative Pleasant Valley Road area is in District 3 now instead of District 19.

msbobbie Yes I am talking about the state rep race.I really want the only person to represent this area who can bring more jobs here.I really think that lockhart could have done more to save the jobs at the wortz cracker plant than he did. I have a friend who works there and she will lose her job. She told me that he[lockhart] knew 6 months before they announced the closing of the plant and he did nothing to help! Needless to say the employees are not voting for him!So again I am going to listen to what the other two say who are in the race and make up my mind who I am voting for.

I did not mean to sound like I was defending James. I have a friend working there too. She is very concerned because she cannot start looking for another job until the doors close at Bremner, or risk losing her severance.

I wrote to James and Mark Allen on her behalf and suggested maybe something could be worked out for Bremner to supply the crackers for the schools, jails and prisons in Oklahoma.

I do not remember the response, but it was not encouraging.

Traci Barnes has the best business record of those who are running.

Well I have been reading the heavener paper and see mr lockhart has made a statement about the first time he voted for president and he said traci barnes "had been after him for two years!" I don't know about that but he sounds like he is whining about it.I guess his race is closer than he wants it to be.I also see the other article in the poteau paper and lockhart is in a chair{looks like he is in a recliner}and he has his feet propped up and he is asleep!!The article says it was during a discussion about an education bill.I guess it was not important enough to him to stay awake!Maybe the educators from this area will send him a message that it was important to them and vote him out!I have ask around to people I know and they are telling me they think lockhart has done a bad job and will not vote for him again.I am a middle age woman and and my friends tell me there has never been a woman representive from this area.Maybe it is time we put one in that office! I am going to vote the way my friends are voting and it is not for lockhart.

LOL Brings to mind a story a couple of years ago that Neil Brannon used to sleep during the sessions and sometimes someone would have to wake him up to vote.

Often when there are a lot of people in a race, the vote gets split up so many ways you wind up with the one you least prefer.

In the 2010 General Election Mattox got 47% of the vote to Lockhart's 53%.

Redistricting favored Republicans (for the first time since statehood) last year. Mattox could have a good chance to win if those who vote, vote party line.

Who is Jackson Burns? I just got back from the grocery store and I ran into a couple of my friends and they said they were told him and lockhart are related and they had a big plan on taking the heavener runstone park and making a bunch of money with it.Has anyone else heard this? I thought the park was taken over by heavener? How could they do this and does anybody know what they are planning to do?
