Who do you support for Lieutenant Governor in Oklahoma in 2010?
Posted in the Yale Forum
#1 Oct 12, 2010
Todd Lamb has the experience and contacts to be very successful in duties of Lt. Governor.
#2 Oct 12, 2010
Corn has accomplished feat things. He is principled and he comes from very humble beginnings. He will be perfect for Oklahoma.
#3 Oct 12, 2010
Describe some of those feat things. Everyone I talk to cannot name one thing he has done for LeFlore County.(I am not talking about individual favors)
I read an article today about the failure of Tiger Truck, and the MG deal in Ardmore that was supposed to bring hundreds of jobs to these areas.

New roads and highways
increased teacher pay
teacher health care benefits paid for by state and district
negotiated to bring jobs to area
saved thousands of coal industry jobs last session when republicans tried to kill the industry at the request of Tom price of Chesapeake energy
saved the senior meals programs in leflore county and the entire state that provide the only mealany elderly people get each day
and that doesn't count helping the dozens of people who need assistance of many kinds who call his office every day
I have watched Kenneth grow up and he is one of the finest young men in the state.
If you haven't seen his good works it is because you won't see them.
You must be one of those Chad hall, mike mass gene stipe crooks down here that
either are or should be in jail.

He brought good paying jobs to this county for years. If the company fails it isn't his fault. You line of thinking reflects blind hate.
Shame on you.

When my WWII veteran father was unable to walk due to illness, the VA bureacracy just ignored us. I don't live in Kenneth's district, but Kenneth helped us secure my father's VA benefits, and got him a mobile chair. His quality of life before he passed away was greatly improved because he had a feeling of independence again.
No other bureacrat, much less politician, would even return our calls. Kenneth did. He gave my father life again, even if it was for a short time. I'll be forever thankful.
That's why I'm voting for Corn.

Kenneth Corn is a career politician, he terms out in one office and just moves to the next rung on the political ladder. Plus he hasn't accomplished a single thing in any office he's held.
I've met Todd Lamb, he's bright, articulate, and he actually listens to you when you speak with him.
Lamb has my vote!

ODOT plans highway construction 8 years in advance of the start of a project.
And where does the state and the district get the money for those salaries and benefits?
The only thing I know about the coal industry around here is a mine near Spiro that only operated a few months and had to shut down because of the quality of coal being produced there.
If Kenneth had not promised so much to the teachers, the elderly meals program would not have been put at risk.
Perhaps you have not heard: "A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take it all away."
Kenneth Corn's "good works" is liberal socialism.
Finally: chad hall, mike mass gene stipe/and msbobbie is an oxymoron.

Tiger Truck was failing in Texas before they arrived here, and hardly got started. Something about emissions quality I think.
I would like for someone to tell me about those "good paying jobs" I have done my time and then some, and retired several years ago, but have friends who complain their children have to move away to find work.
Why does LeFlore and Sequoyah counties rank #74 and #75 on the States unemployment charts while some counties in Western Oklahoma have unemployment under 5%?
Blind hate? Not hardly. I just do not agree with Kenneth's politics.
#10 Oct 13, 2010
It is all Kenneth knows how to do. In his 8 years in the Senate Kenneth has introduced 392 (+/-) bills. Most have to do with increased salary and benefits for state employees.
I met Todd Lamb one time and liked what he had to say, but I actually research all of the candidates before I decide who to support. If I don't like any of them, they do not get my stamp of approval.
#11 Oct 13, 2010
I have followed Corn form many years and he has always done what he told me he would do. Don't think we need Lamb and all of his "contacts".
#12 Oct 13, 2010
It's funny that Todd Lamb's family has been involved in decades for four decades. His father was one of those career politicians and now his son wants to be the same thing.
If you look at their records, you will find Lamb has been on the Oklahoma taxpayer payroll about as long as Sen. Corn.
And the federal government payroll to boot, mostly working for career politicians.
Now he works for a big-time Washington Lobbyist whie he takes a paycheck from you. Just what we need. Another Washington-style politician in holding a critical spot in Oklahoma's leadership.

Ms. Bobbie ---
I think I've heard of you in the Poteau area. Don't you receive government subsidies of some kind?
I also believe don't you always support Republicans? Even the ones who've been arrested for DUI and drug possession?
I would hardly call you fair and balanced. And BTW, the eight-year plan did not start until after Brad Henry became governor and Sen. Corn worked to ensure the projects in LeFlore County were included on the list.
It took a hard-working Democrat to get those projects moving forward.
#14 Oct 13, 2010
Also, Ms. Bobbie
You say Sen. Corn is for liberal socialism, he's one of only two memebers of the State Senate who voted against a bailout of insurance companies with your tax dollars.
Your small-government candidate Lamb voted for the bailout.
Maybe that's because he stands up for them rather regular Oklahomans like you.
#15 Oct 13, 2010
msbobbie, i'm curious, you say that Sen. Corn has done nothing while in the state senate, can you name on thing todd lamb has done besides protect his corporate clients?
#16 Oct 13, 2010
O.K. Everyone pile on msbobbie. I stand by what I have stated my opinion of Kenneth Corn's politics and I will not dance with anyone asking personal questions about me.
#17 Oct 13, 2010
I do not know that he has "protected corporate clients". You will have to be more specific.
I support Todd Lamb for what he has done outside of the Legislature. He has had real jobs. Even if they were "government jobs". Kenneth Corn has not.
Todd Lamb has a family and wants the same things for his future generations that I want for mine..OPPORTUNITY. He is an attorney and could probably do will without holding an elected office.
On March 11, 2009 Senator Lamb voted in favor of SJR-12, legislation to put SQ747 on a ballot for the people to decide if state wide elected office holders should be term limited. Does that sound like a career politician?
Kenneth Corn voted NAY
Todd Lamb has the skills and background and "contacts" to do well for Oklahoma in the Lt. Governor's office.
Who of you have looked at the job description for the Lt. Governor in Oklahoma?
#18 Oct 13, 2010
i now Corns Mother and she has NO morals what so ever and if his morals are anything like hers, there no way IN HELL that he needs be anything. people are so lacking in morals anymore!! If you want him in heavner than keep him there we dont need him missing up everything else!
#19 Oct 13, 2010

#20 Oct 13, 2010
